Publisher's summary: Security Studies as a sub-field of international relations has undergone significant change during the past twenty years, and is now one of the most dynamic disciplines within the field of International Relations. The Routledge Handbook of Security Studies is a comprehensive collection of cutting-edge essays on all aspects of this subject by a mix of established and up-and-coming international scholars. It identifies the key contemporary topics of research and debate today, taking into account that the study of international security has undergone dramatic changes since the end of the Cold War. Security studies now also encompasses dangers ranging from pandemics and environmental degradation to more traditional concerns about direct violence such as posed by international terrorism and inter-state armed conflict. With its focus on contemporary challenges, this handbook offers a ground-breaking and wide-ranging collection of essays on security studies. The volume will have five parts. The first section looks at a wide variety of theoretical positions; the second focuses on different conceptions of security; the third addresses a number of contemporary security topics, including terrorism, climate change and other topical issues; the fourth analyses specific regional security issues; and, before the fifth examines the tools and instruments in place to counter these security challenges. This handbook will be essential reading for all scholars and students of Security Studies, War and Conflict Studies and International Relations in general.
