Product Description


'A much needed book. Combining a systematic overview of the evolution of critical security studies with a compelling account of today's complex and vibrant debates, it is both an excellent introduction to the subject and a substantial contribution to its development' --- Michael C. Williams, University of Ottawa, Canada

'In an accessible way, this book presents a state of the art of critical security studies that simultaneously redefines it by bringing together familiar and less familiar approaches. It succeeds in providing an overview of developments over the past 15 years to define a future-oriented field of critical security studies' --- Jef Huysmans, Open University, UK

‘Well written and well organised, this text offers a thoughtful analysis of a range of approaches and issues, and provides a concise guide to a burgeoning and complex subfield’ --- Political Studies Review

Great Overview of the Field 4 Sept. 2010
By Kevin J.S. Duska Jr. - Published on
Format: Paperback
A rather stellar overview of the field. I assigned this text to my upper-level Security Studies class. I feel that it provided a very thorough and grounded overview of the field. Peoples and Vaughan do a great job bringing CSS down to earth by unpacking occasionally dense approaches into representative theories accompanied by strong real world examples. The only downside? The text boxes were often very redundant and, honestly, slightly annoying. Other than that, a great text to assign for an upper-level CSS class - assuming that you'll be supplementing it with either a reader or a good selection of articles.
