Reviews

The changing nature of security has been breathtaking in its speed and unexpected turns since the end of the Cold War. Mary Kaldor's consistent accuracy in mapping those changes has been an invaluable and reliable guide as we enter into ever more uncertain territory. The Handbook should lie at the ready on any policy maker's desk. (Expofairs, 1 October 2015)
