About this book

Security in Translation proposes an innovative way to capture the evolution, spread and local transformation of threat images in world affairs. Reworking traditional securitization theory, this book develops a coherent new framework for analysis that makes securitization theory applicable to empirical studies.

Reviews

“This book is the first to examine cross-cultural securitization, that is, the incremental processes of international spread and domestic localization of threat discourse. … this book’s dual attempts to examine the empirical phenomenon of the travel of threat discourse and to build its theoretical claim are effective. To those engaged in securitization studies, International Relations, as well as German and American security affairs, this book will make a valuable read.” (Wenge Chen, Discourse and Society, Vol. 27 (1), January, 2016)
