وصف كتب مصر
During the Cold War the concept of international security was traditionally
understood in military terms as the threat or use of force by states. The end
of East-West hostilities, however, brought new 'critical' perspectives to the
fore as scholars sought to explain the emergence of new challenges to
international stability, such as environmental degradation, immigration and
'Critical Approaches to International Security' is the first book to offer a
wide-ranging and comprehensive analysis of the field of critical security
studies. It maps the evolution of debates about security from the end of the
Cold War to the present day, arguing that the conceptual and methodological
innovations of critical security studies are crucial for understanding many
contemporary international developments. Organized around a range of core
concepts that have defined various critical approaches, the book guides the
reader through a wide range of literature and debates. Topics covered include:
the relationship between security and change, identity, the production of
danger, trauma, human insecurity and emancipation. The book explores the
meaning and use of these concepts and their relevance to real-life situations
ranging from NATO expansion, conflict in the Balkans, migration, suffering in
war, failed states and state-building, the war on terror and Hurricane Katrina.
This book makes a significant and original contribution to the study of
international relations and security studies and will be of great value to
students and scholars of international relations and security studies.
