In this second edition of Critical Approaches to International Security Karin Fierke retains the thematic strengths of the first edition while mapping changes in the contours of the field of critical security studies since 2007. With her focus on security as both constructed and necessarily political, Karin Fierke remains one of the most important voices on critical theoretical engagement with security in international relations. This text is a must-read for any student or researcher serious about the study and practice of security. Matt McDonald, The University of Queensland
Pushing further the debates over critical approaches to security studies, the second edition of Fierke's book addresses its core themes -- change, identity, danger, trauma and emancipation -- in a clear and compelling manner. The book will make an excellent textbook, engaging directly with real-world security issues while remaining true to its critical engagement. Keith Krause, Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva
