This major new textbook brings together key scholars to introduce students to the fast-evolving field of security studies. The book is divided into three sections: differing approaches to the study of security; the broadening and deepening of security; and a range of traditional andnon-traditional issues that have emerged on the security agenda. 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. Security studies encompasses dangers that range from pandemics, such as HIV/AIDS, and environmentaldegradation through to the more readily associated security concerns of direct violence, such as terrorism and inter-state armed conflict. Accessible and easy to use, Contemporary Security Studies is essential reading for all students new to international security.The book is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre.Student resources:Case studies on the Iraq War, Zimbabwe, migration and North KoreaWeb links Multiple Choice QuestionsFlashcard glossaryLecturer resources:PowerPoint slides
