“Due to advances in communications and the increasing availability of destructive weapons, it is clear that the security of Western societies is connected to the security of populations where terrorist threats originate. The authors trace the problem of terrorism and other threats to international security to a lack of human security. They argue convincingly that preventing violence requires addressing the conditions that lead to violence. Their argument that a human security paradigm should serve as the basis for policy and strategy is important and is certain to generate valuable discussion and debate.”

H. R. McMaster, Brigadier General, U.S. Army, and author of Dereliction of Duty

 

“The much-abused term ‘human security’ gets a full-body makeover in Beebe and Kaldor’s important new book. They start from the premise that it took Gen. Stanley McChrystal and the U.S. armed forces six years to realize in Afghanistan: ousting even a decidedly abusive government will not succeed without robust and genuine protection of the local population’s human rights. Revolutionary, and complicated, and bound to get people in important places arguing.” Carroll Bogert, associate director, Human Rights Watch
