  • Part 2 explains the central concepts underpinning contemporary debates from the security dilemma to terrorism.
  • Part 3 presents an overview of the institutional security architecture currently influencing world politics using international, regional and global levels of analysis.

Review:

"Debates and controversies about security politics and practices are of immediate significance in contemporary global politics. Since its first publication, this book has made an important contribution to knowledge in this field. This comprehensively revised third edition, featuring welcome contributions on post-structuralism, post-colonialism, and the Women, Peace and Security agenda, among other new topics, ensures the continued relevance of the book, and its ongoing status as my ' go to' book for teaching security studies." - Laura J. Shepherd, Professor, UNSW Sydney, Australia.

"Combining theoretical breadth and empirical engagement, this text provides a comprehensive guide to understanding some of the most important issues in world politics today. An outstanding introduction to security and security studies." - Michael C Williams, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Ottawa
