This book is a timely, highly relevant, multifaceted and most interesting contribution to the thinking on international security and globalization. The key argument of the book that security can, in a globalized world, only be achieved through increased international cooperation at every level, including the cultural one, is pertinent. Security has ceased to be a zero-sum game. It is an objective we have to work towards jointly --Ambassador Dr. Theodor H. Winkler, Director, Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces, Geneva, Switzerland.
In becoming a household name (and often a whipping-boy), the idea of globalization has risked losing some of its focus and diagnostic force. This book faces up to the challenge of defining it and explores its many implications, with a linking theme of multi-dimensional security. It adds up to a versatile reader that also leaves questions open for further thought. --Alyson J.K. Bailes, Director, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), Stockholm, Sweden.
This diverse and rich collection of essays explores the complex links between globalization and contemporary security issues. It advances our understanding on a range of issues, and provides useful snapshots of key environmental, economic, political and geostrategic risks, challenges and vulnerabilities. --Dr. Keith Krause, Director, Programme in Strategic and International Security Studies, Graduate Institute of International Studies, and Programme Director, Small Arms Survey, Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva, Switzerland.
