`This collection of classic essays and contemporary scholarship illustrates the scope, substance and debates of the field of security studies. Hughes and Lai guide the reader by describing the themes and issues that animate security studies, explaining how they form a coherent way of thinking about world politics. This outstanding volume introduces the reader to important works in the field, while illustrating emerging trends in theory, politics and policy'.---James J. Wirtz, Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA

This reader brings together key contributions from many of the leading scholars in the field, offering students an informed overview of the most significant work in security studies.

The editors chart the development of the key theoretical and empirical debates in security studies in the Cold War and post-Cold War periods, introducing the ideas of the most influential `past masters' and contemporary thinkers on security in the UK, the US and elsewhere.

In order to guide students through the issues, the book has a substantial critical introduction exploring the development of security studies, as well as introductory essays that provide an overview of each section, highlighting clearly how the readings fit together. Suggestions for further reading and key questions for discussion are also included.

Security Studies is an invaluable resource for all students of security studies and international relations.
