Humanitarian Intervention

1st Edition

Alex J. Bellamy
February 24, 2017

Radicalization

Radicalization

1st Edition

Peter R. Neumann
June 25, 2015

‘Radicalization’ has become one of the great buzzwords of our time. A Google search for the concept produces more than 1,500,000 hits—less than ‘terrorism’ but equal to ‘political violence’ and ‘extremism’.

Vincent Chetail, Oliver Jütersonke
June 22, 2014

Health Security and Governance

1st Edition

Nicholas Thomas
July 19, 2012

It is increasingly recognized that the pandemic potential of many diseases holds the power to wreck economies, divide societies, and, indeed, to jeopardize the viability of nation states. In consequence, there is a growing—and urgent—need to understand and address such threats. As research in and...

Critical Security Studies

Critical Security Studies

1st Edition

Nick Vaughan-Williams, Columba Peoples
July 03, 2012

Although prominent—some would argue pre-eminent—within the modern political lexicon, the concept of ‘security’ is complex and contested. While the meaning and reference point of security was once largely taken for granted within International Relations, the past thirty years or so have witnessed...

Security and Stability in the Middle East

Security and Stability in the Middle East

1st Edition

Barry Rubin
December 23, 2011

No region of the world has been more affected by the forces of instability and the factors of war and insecurity than has the Middle East. The area has seen more violence and conflict in the last three or four decades than all of the other world regions put together. Moreover, conflict in the area...

Intelligence

Intelligence

1st Edition

Loch K. Johnson
August 04, 2010

Many experts on security intelligence distinguish ‘mysteries’ from ‘secrets’. Mysteries (e.g. can Pakistan survive the threat it faces from the presence of insurgents in its western provinces?) are worldly phenomena that governments may wish to understand, but which are difficult to fathom given...
