  The Empire of Security and theSafety of the People This new volume explores the meaning of security in relation to, and inthe context of, ideas that are fundamental to both international anddomestic political order. William Bain argues that the word ‘security’ is devoid of substantivecontent when divorced from ideas such as sovereignty, war, diplomacy,great power responsibility, self-determination, globalization, culturaldiversity, intervention, and trusteeship. In other words, ‘security’ cannot be made to yield a real core or an intrinsic content because it discloses noessence that awaits discovery. This clear and accessible book draws on animpressive range of history, philosophy, and law to investigate these andother questions:ãHow do norms of sovereignty inform an ethics of international security?ãIs security something that can be achieved through the recognition of identity?ãAre all states, great and small, of equal moral importance?ãDoes the enjoyment of security demand cultural homogeneity?ãIs the body of international law that addresses questions of inter- vention still relevant in a post-11 September world?ãHow might security be understood in light of wars that are fought inorder to kill rather than to win?This book will be of particular interest to those conducting empirical andnormative research on questions of security. It is also an excellent resource for students wanting to develop an understanding of security incontemporary world affairs.  William Bain is a lecturer in International Relations Theory in the Depart-ment of International Politics at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, UK.  Routledge advances in international relations and global politics 1Foreign Policy and Discourse Analysis France, Britain and Europe Henrik Larsen  2Agency, Structure andInternational Politics From ontology to empiricalenquiry  Gil Friedman and Harvey Starr  3The Political Economy of Regional Co-operation in theMiddle East  Ali Carkoglu, Mine Eder and Kemal Kirisci  4Peace Maintenance The evolution of internationalpolitical authority   Jarat Chopra  5International Relations andHistorical Sociology  Breaking down boundaries Stephen Hobden  6Equivalence in ComparativePolitics  Edited by Jan W. van Deth  7The Politics of Central Banks Robert Elgie and Helen Thompson  8Politics and Globalisation Knowledge, ethics and agency  Martin Shaw  9History and InternationalRelations Thomas W.
