    schema:reviewBody "Global security has steadily broadened its meaning in the post-Cold War and post-September 11th world. This textbook introduces students to the core issues of both 'hard' security, which dominated the Cold War, and the 'soft' security that has emerged since, in a clear and concise format that is easy to follow. Understanding Global Security uses helpful case studies to illustrate the key concepts behind the increasing number of non-military threats to security such as terrorism, ethnic rivalries and transnational crime, while still exploring the more conventional areas such as war, nuclear weapons and the balance of power. A highly topical account that includes discussion of the 2003 Iraq War: this is the best introductory textbook for students of security studies, strategic studies and international relations." ;
