The second edition of this widely acclaimed book takes as its
main theme the question of how states and societies pursue freedom
from threat in an environment in which competitive relations are
inescapable across the political, economic, military, societal and
environmental landscapes. Throughout, attention is placed on the
interplay of threats and vulnerabilities, the policy consequences
of overemphasizing one or the other, and the existence of
contradictions within and between ideas about security. Barry Buzan
argues that the concept of security is a versatile, penetrating and
useful way to approach the study of international relations.
Security provides an analytical framework which stands between the
extremes of power and peace, incorporates most of their insights
and adds more of its own.
