This new Handbook gathers together state-of-the-art theoretical reflection and empirical research by a group of leading international scholars in the subdiscipline of Critical Security Studies.

In today's globalised setting, the challenge of maintaining security is no longer limited to the traditional foreign-policy and military tools of the nation-state, and security and insecurity are no longer considered as dependent only upon geopolitics and military strength, but rather are also seen to depend upon social, economic, environmental, ethical models of analysis and tools of action. The contributors discuss and evaluate this fundamental shift in four key areas:

New security conceptsNew security subjectsNew security objects New security practices

Offering a comprehensive theoretical and empirical overview of this evolving field, this book will be essential reading for all students of critical security studies, human security, international/global security, political theory and IR in general.

J. Peter Burgess is Research Professor at PRIO, the International Peace Research Institute, Oslo, where he leads the Security Programme and edits the interdisciplinary journal Security Dialogue. In addition, he is Adjunct Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim (NTNU), and Research Fellow at the Institute for European Studies, Brussels.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'..all will find it a good resource for current assessments of their particular subfields. Recommended for college libraries, collections supporting security studies programs, and larger public library systems. Summing Up: Recommended.' CHOICE

'The Handbook of New Security Studies puts into light the many security issues that have emerged (or made more visible) from 1990...The Handbook indeed privileges a specific way of analyzing security; almost all contributions belong to a common theoretical family, which contributes to the coherence of the whole...It is an ideal tool for graduate and doctoral students in the early stages of their research.' - Stephane J. Baele, University of Namur
