Reviews

'This impressive collection shows the limits of what governments refer to as security . Much is left out of this governmental notion. And what it leaves out seems to have expanded as the significance of the term has grown. A must read.' Saskia Sassen, Columbia University, USA, and author of Expulsions 'This most welcomed volume brings fresh empirical, legal and analytic perspectives to the well-worn, and often obfuscated, issues of European security governance. Case studies spanning several decades document rarely treated insecurities involving disease, refugees, migrants and environmental despoliation that are ignored or made worse by current approaches to the securitization of society . With intelligence and passion the book argues for a broadly defined human security rather than a more narrowly defined national security. It forces us to ask security for whom? And at what costs and risks for those least privileged, as well as for the future of all persons?' Gary T. Marx, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, and author of Windows Into the Soul: Surveillance and Society in an Age of High Technology
