'A much needed book. Combining a systematic overview of the evolution of critical security studies with a compelling account of today's complex and vibrant debates, it is both an excellent introduction to the subject and a substantial contribution to its development' --- Michael C. Williams, University of Ottawa, Canada
'In an accessible way, this book presents a state of the art of critical security studies that simultaneously redefines it by bringing together familiar and less familiar approaches. It succeeds in providing an overview of developments over the past 15 years to define a future-oriented field of critical security studies' --- Jef Huysmans, Open University, UK
‘Well written and well organised, this text offers a thoughtful analysis of a range of approaches and issues, and provides a concise guide to a burgeoning and complex subfield’ --- Political Studies ReviewReseña del editor:
Critical Security Studies introduces students of Politics and International Relations to the sub-field through a detailed yet accessible survey of emerging theories and practices.
Written in an accessible and clear manner, this textbook:
The book is divided into two main parts. The first part, ‘Approaches’, surveys the newly extended and contested theoretical terrain of Critical Security Studies, and the different schools within the subdiscipline, including Feminist, Postcolonial and Poststructuralist viewpoints. The second part, ‘Issues’, will then offer examples of how these various theoretical approaches have been put to work against the backdrop of a diverse range of issues in contemporary security practices, from environmental, human and homeland security to border security and the War on Terror.
The historical and geographical scope of the book is deliberately broad and readers will be introduced to a number of key illustrative case studies. Each of the chapters in Part II will act to concretely illustrate one or more of the approaches discussed in Part I, with clear internal referencing allowing the text to act as a holistic learning tool for students.
This book will be essential reading for upper level students of Critical Security Studies, and an important resource for students of International/Global Security, Political Theory, and IR in general.
