CPRS Human Security Challenges


ISBN: 978 0 95706 3112




By Alan Hunter

Hunter’s Human Security Challenges opens the subject up in a very accessible language for the beginner,o but it also interrogates it critically. For the more advanced reader, whether experienced scholar or undergraduate student, it is a refreshingly clear expression of a complex debate. It is a very useful summation of the whole of the debate, saving readers much time in bringing themselves up to speed with the relevant material, which is so widely dispersed; and it treats these debates with sophistication, sensitivity and maturity whilstremaining open, accessible and unintimidating. I’d recommend it as the best introduction to Human Security I’ve seen.
