Reviews

'Bryan Mabee's book represents a new advance in the study of globalization and state security. He shows compellingly how state power has adapted to globalization, situating state and security in the broader dynamics of historical change. I strongly recommend this book.' - Professor Michael Cox, London School of Economics, UK

'Mabee shows how a historical sociology perspective changes the way in which fundamental questions of international relations, such as security, should be understood. Correcting the trend to take security out of the state context, this book explores how changes in security issues have been connected to transformations of the state. An important contribution to thinking about the links between states and globalization.' - Professor Martin Shaw, University of Sussex, UK

'This is an excellent book which provides a compelling account of how the globalization of security has affected contemporary state power and state legitimacy. It also offers an exemplar of how to 'bring history back' to the discipline of IR, and how this can only enrich and improve our understanding of international politics and urgent contemporary issues. ' - International Affairs, Roland Dannreuther, University of Westminster, UK

'An excellent book which provides a compelling account of how the globalization of security has affected contemporary state power.'

-International Affairs 86:5, 2010
