Critique, Security and Power synopsis
This book aims to interact with contemporary security discourse from a critical perspective. Instead of being a radical security theory, she says, many critical security theories fail to deliver on their promise to challenge contemporary power relations.
In general, theories of criticalsecurity dialogues are understood as progressive theoretical frameworks that provide an assessment and analysis of contemporary international and national security policies. Tara McCormack examines the limitations of modern contemporary theory and caution and its relation to contemporary power structures.
From theoretical criticism to a case study on criticalapproaches to the disintegration of the former Yugoslavia, this book evaluates the policies adopted by the international community at the time to show that many of today's critical contemporary security theories and discourse reflect the shifts in international and national security policy in the post-war period Cold. Far from challenging the inequality of international power and providing an emancipatory framework, today's criticalsecurity theory inadvertently leads to acting as a theoretical justification for an unequal international order.
This book will be of great importance to students of serious securitystudies,international relations and securitystudies. Tara McCormack is a lecturer in international politics at the University of Leicester and has a PhD in International Relations from the University of Westminster.
