Summary
  • "This is the book that those who teach international security have been waiting for: an in-depth, serious treatment of the emerging ̀human security' paradigm, one that will serve as a marvelous foundation for units on these issues in upper-division courses or for entire courses on the subject. Timely, important, and engaging."--Christopher J. Fettweis, Tulane University
  • "Provides the best comprehensive examination of nontraditional, human security issues. The authors' approach is very important and persuasive. This book will be very helpful for anyone studying human security at the global level. It is a perfect fit for undergraduate classes on security, international relations, and globalization."--Dursun Peksen, East Carolina University
  • "The focus on globalization and human security sets this book apart from the more traditional textbooks. Well written and easy to follow, the book uniquely sets out the security problem in each section, presents the approaches and policies the United States has implemented, and offers important suggestions for improvement."--Mary Pettenger, Western Oregon University
  • To fully understand contemporary security studies, we must move beyond the traditional focus on major national powers and big wars. Modern threats to security include issues such as globalization, climate change, pandemic diseases, endemic poverty, weak and failing states, transnational narcotics trafficking, piracy, and vulnerable information systems. Human Security in a Borderless World offers a fresh, detailed examination of these challenges that threaten human beings, their societies, and their governments today. Authors Derek S. Reveron and Kathleen A. Mahoney-Norris provide a thought-provoking exploration of civic, economic, environmental, maritime, health, and cyber security issues in this era of globalization, including thorough consideration of the policy implications for the United States. They argue that human security is now national security. --Book Jacket
