ByMoreThe field of security studies is full of schisms and ambiguities. This is an accessible new examination of what security means today, contextualizing the term amongst other key ideas, such as the nation state, diplomacy, war and autonomy.

By exploring the many differing conceptions of security, each of which is valid in its own right, this study clearly explains how the idea of security in world affairs can be understood in relation to other ideas and points of view. It shows how, when standing alone, the word security is meaningless, or just an empty term, when divorced from other ideas distinctive to international life.

The reader is therefore equipped with an excellent understanding of the major terminology and debates of this important field. This essential new volume tackles the key questions in the debate: what norms of sovereignty relate to security? Does security necessarily follow from the recognition of identity? What sort of obligations in respect of security attach to power?

How far can a political arrangement of empire remedy human insecurity? Can trusteeship provide security in a world of legally equal sovereign states? And, is security the guarantor of freedom?- This book is of particular interest to those conducting empirical and normative research on questions of security. This is also an excellent resource for students with an interest in how ideas of sovereignty, war, great powers, diplomacy, self-determination, intervention, empire, global governance, globalization, cultural difference, and trusteeship or international administration, shape our understanding of security in contemporary world affairs.
