Abstract:

"The belief that 'Nature' exists as a blank, stable stage upon which humans act out tragic performances of international relations is no longer tenable. In a world defined by human action, we must reorient our understanding of ourselves, of our environment, and our security."

"This book considers how decentred and reflexive approaches to security are required to cope with the Anthropocene -- the Human Age. Drawing from various disciplines, this bold reinterpretation explores the possibilities for understanding and preparing a future that will look vastly different than the past. The book asks to dig deeper into what it means to be human and secure in an age of ecological exception." -- Page [4] of cover.
