--Professor Christine Sylvester, University of Lancaster, UK
In a lucid and compelling book Anthony Burke dissects the politics of security in several theories of state territory. He also addresses closely a series of recent state practices of security. In doing so, he opens the door to a post-security politics, a politics that goes beyond the construction of permanent, unspecified enemies.
