Summary

Are world politics more or less stable, violence prone, and anxiety producing today than in previous eras? How are states and nonstate actors coping with these issues? What new material do the public and especially students of security studies need to understand the security environment of the next century? The editors of this ambitious successor volume to Security Studies for the 1990s approach the subject from national, international, regional, transstate, and comparative perspectives. Each chapter provides an in-depth review of a major security aspect of the subject, providing key concepts, methods, suggested course structure, a bibliography, and a model syllabus. This book is designed primarily for courses at the graduate level, but it can also be adapted for undergraduates.
