Sean Kay has written one of those rare studies that is truly as important as its subject. With clear-eyed prose, sober intelligence, and scholarly depth, he examines a comprehensive array of today's new global security challenges—illuminating every important issue of the day related to international peace and stability, from crucial new areas such as the security consequences of global warming and energy scarcity to perennial problems in the search for international peace and prosperity. Anyone looking to make an impact on international affairs should start here!

I would rank Global Security in the Twenty-first Century
as one of the finest textbooks on the market today for international security courses. It presents an innovative and effective balance of classic and contemporary dimensions of security. Another great asset is Kay's deft ability to combine theoretical approaches and policy-oriented questions and frameworks. His book offers an authoritative, thoughtful, and highly engaging discussion of critical issues in global security. (Jeffrey S. Lantis, The College of Wooster)
