Description: This textbook introduces students to the sub-field of critical security studies through a detailed yet accessible survey of emerging theories and practices. This new edition contains two new chapters and has been fully revised and updated. Written in an accessible and clear manner, Critical Security Studies: offers a comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to critical security studies; locates critical security studies within the broader context of social and political theory; evaluates fundamental theoretical positions in critical security studies against backdrop of new security challenges. The book is divided into two main parts. The first section, 'Approaches', surveys the newly extended and contested theoretical terrain of Critical Security Studies, and the different schools within the subdiscipline, including Feminist, Postcolonial, Constructivist and Poststructuralist viewpoints. The second, 'Issues', offers examples of how these various theoretical approaches have been put to work against the backdrop of a diverse range of issues in contemporary security practices, from environmental, human and homeland security to border security, health security and the 'War on Terror'. The historical and geographical scope of the book is deliberately broad and readers are introduced to a number of key illustrative case studies. Each of the chapters in Part II acts concretely to illustrate one or more of the approaches discussed in Part I, with clear internal referencing allowing the text to act as a holistic learning tool for students. This book will be essential reading for upper-level students of Critical Security Studies, and an important resource for students of International/Global Security, Political Theory, and IR in general.
