'The Evolution of International Security Studies takes an amazing intellectual journey around the rich, variegated and sometimes surprising stories about security that IR - all of it! - tells. An astonishing achievement.' Christine Sylvester, Lancaster University
'The Evolution of International Security Studies is more than a comprehensive survey of a vast and contentious body of thought; it is also a lucid and insightful analysis of the forces that have shaped the field and the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches. Buzan and Hansen are scrupulously fair-minded and their book is a model of clear and elegant exposition. It will be of enormous value to students and of considerable interest to established scholars as well.' Stephen M. Walt, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
'In this important new contribution to International Security Studies (ISS), Barry Buzan and Lene Hansen provide the field's first disciplinary history. ... a thoroughly comprehensive, unerringly balanced and sophisticatedly argued account of ISS that is essential reading for newcomers and old hands alike.' International Affairs
'... a scholarly inquiry ... A key merit of this excellent book is its ambition to leave no corner of the vast field of security studies unexplored ... the book provides a well-structured description of the evolving priorities of security studies ...' Survival
