About the eBook

Security Studies: An Applied Introduction offers a transformative tool to understand, analyse, and engage with the complexities of security in the modern world. This groundbreaking new text redefines the landscape of security studies with the following features:

Policy-Relevant: each chapter provides analysis of policy responses to empirical security issues. This practical approach offers a toolkit to assess and contribute to real-world policy discussions. Empirical Application: vividly demonstrating the real-world relevance of Security Studies with online videos from leading security practitioners to show how theory informs practice. Pedagogically Rich: comprehensive online resources and chapters features such as ′security beyond the real′ and hands-on exercises that critically assess real-world security responses and their policy implications that offer ways to apply theoretical concepts in a highly innovative way. Innovative Structure: seamlessly integrating theoretical perspectives with empirical security concerns, this textbook offers a non-compartmentalised approach to theory and practice. Hot Topics: placing contemporary, creative, emerging, and underexplored approaches and empirical topics at the forefront including cyber security, racism, and space security.
