Reflecting the growing interest among scholars and practitioners in the relationship between security affairs and economics, this new volume explores the nature of that relationship in the first decade of the 21st century. Among the issues addressed in the book are the impact of the events of September 11 and of the U.S. response. The authors also consider whether the challenges of the current security environment are in fact new, or instead more virulent manifestations of long-term trends and processes. The result is a state-of-the-art resource on the engagement between security studies and international political economy, intended to encourage still further broadening and overlap of the research agendas of both fields.
