Critical Security Series

Series Editors:

A number of crises since the Cold War have demonstrated in the most dramatic way the insecurity of ordinary people in circumstances where states and the international system of states are either unable to provide protection or are themselves the principal sources of violence. Against such a backdrop, narrow views of security have become increasingly inappropriate. New challenges are emerging, and new dimensions need to be explored: accordingly, a radical reassessment of the notion of security is currently under way, leading to the notion of ’critical security’ with which this series is principally concerned. In the process of change, scope has been found for a wide variety of disciplines to enter the fray, and for fresh fields of study to claim some relevance and value to the field of security studies. This timely series seeks to encourage an interdisciplinary understanding of the notion of security in contemporary global life.
