Now in a thoroughly updated edition, this comprehensive yet concise introduction to international security explores the constantly changing conditions that lead to an insecure world. The text offers a broad overview of both traditional and new conceptions of security. With clear and lively prose, compelling examples, and solid scholarship, it engages both students of international relations and general readers who wish to gain a better understanding of what security means today and how it can best be achieved.
