Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a valuable resource for scholars as well as a text for students. It is the most comprehensive survey of alternative ways of thinking about international security available. Maintaining theoretical and methodological rigor while integrating security studies into the larger field of international relations is a monumental achievement." David A. Baldwin, Professor of World Order Studies and Political Science, Columbia University

"Security and International Relations is a very welcome addition to the literature in both the field of international relations and that of security studies. Clear and forceful prose, balanced analysis, and comprehensive coverage make the volume a superb introduction for both advanced undergraduates and graduate students. Unlike so much of the recent literature in the field which begins with the assumption that the author has found "truth" and proceeds to demonstrate the superiority of "this approach" over all others, Kolodziej's text guides the reader through the complexities of identifying the problems of concern in determining why and when state actors decide to use force, as well as to the strengths and weaknesses of the myriad theoretical approaches to IR and security studies." Roger E. Kanet, Professor of International Studies, University of Miami

Book Description

This textbook helps students to identify and discuss the main issues in international security today. It evaluates the contending schools of thought and their key assumptions in explaining why states use or chose not to use force to get their way. Each school is tested in terms of its capacity to explain the rise and demise of the Cold War and to address the security challenges confronting the peoples and states of the twenty-first century. The book also contains essay questions and guides to further reading.
