This is an excellent textbook as well as a great scholarly read. Collins has brought together a very distinguished group of scholars to deal with some of the most pressing security challenges of our time from a theoretical and historical perspective. ( Amitav Acharya, American University, Washington DC)

This volume links theory to substance. It offers diverse and competing conceptual lenses for thinking about the nature of security and specific challenges. Readers will come away educated, not merely informed. ( Richard Ned Lebow, Dartmouth College and London School of Economics and Political Science)

Since the end of the Cold War and following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the security studies field has been in dire need of a core textbook for undergraduates. It now has one. Even as the international security outlook continues to change at an unsettling pace, this bigger and better edition adeptly tracks and tackles those changes in ways that will bring out the most creativity in teachers and students alike. ( Geoffrey Wiseman, University of Southern California)

An excellent introduction. The collection is particularly useful in bringing together major recent approaches in security studies and explaining their philosophical background and practical implications. ( Roland Dannreuther, University of Edinburgh)

Reseña del editor:

The second edition of Contemporary Security Studies builds on the thorough coverage of the first with the inclusion of new chapters. Written by key scholars, the book introduces students to the fast-evolving field of security studies. It covers differing approaches to the study of security; the broadening and deepening of security; and a range of traditional and non-traditional issues that have emerged on the security agenda, ensuring students are provided with a comprehensive insight into all areas of the subject. The study of international security has undergone dramatic changes since the end of the Cold War. While war and the threat to use force is part of the security equation it is not exclusively so. The subject of security studies encompasses dangers that range from pandemics, such as HIV/AIDS, and the environment degradation through to the more readily associated security concerns of direct violence, such as terrrorism and inter-state armed conflict. Accessible and easy to use, Contemporary Security Studies is essential reading for all students new to international security. Online Resource Centre includes: Student resources Case studies Web links Multiple choice questions Flashcard glossary Lecturer resources PowerPoint slides
