About this book

This book provides international perspective for those studying or working in the security domain, from enforcement to policy. It focuses on non-traditional threats in a landscape that has been described as transnational in nature and incorporates natural disasters, gang violence, extremism and terrorism, amongst other issues. Chapters provide innovative thinking on themes including cyber security, maritime security, transnational crime, human security, globalization and economic security. Relevant theoretical frameworks are presented and readers are expertly guided through complex threats, from matters pertaining to health security which pose threats not only to humans but also have significant national security implications, to issues regarding critical infrastructure vulnerability and the complexity of understanding terrorist operations. Authors reveal how emerging uncertainties regarding global critical infrastructure and supply chain security, food security, and health security are linked to the notion of human security. Security professionals, policy makers and academics will all gain from the insights, strategies and perspectives in this book. It builds understanding of the deepening and broadening domain of security studies and provides a valuable reference text for courses on security studies and international relations.

Reviews

“Approximately 20 international authors contribute 15 chapters to aspects of the contemporary transnational security landscape. Collectively they provide a big-picture snapshot of contemporary research and concerns. Advanced students, scholars, and practitioners will want to review these studies. … Individuals whose work involves forward thinking about evolving security challenges will want to review this thinking.” (Brad Reid, Computing Reviews, computingreviews.com, July, 2016)
