This Handbook brings together 30 state-of-the-art essays covering the essential aspects of global security research and practice for the 21st century.

  • Embraces a broad definition of security that extends beyond the threat of foreign military attack to cover new risks for violence
  • Offers comprehensive coverage framed around key security concepts, risks, policy tools, and global security actors
  • Discusses pressing contemporary issues including terrorism, disarmament, genocide, sustainability, international peacekeeping, state-building, natural disasters, energy and food security, climate change, and cyber warfare
  • Includes insightful and accessible contributions from around the world aimed at a broad base of scholars, students, practitioners, and policymakers

"The changing nature of security has been breathtaking in its speed and unexpected turns since the end of the Cold War. Mary Kaldor's consistent accuracy in mapping those changes has been an invaluable and reliable guide as we enter into ever more uncertain territory. The Handbook should lie at the ready on any policy maker's desk."
Misha Glenny, Journalist and commentator, author of McMafia: Seriously Organised Crime (2008)
