Threat Politics: New Perspectives On Security, Risk And Crisis Management (eBook)
New Perspectives On Security, Risk And Crisis Management
Sobre o livro
This title was first published in 2001. Aiming to open up a new perspective on the study of threats and risks, this text combines insights from the thematically linked but academically disassociated fields of security studies, risk studies and crisis management studies. It provides case studies of key agents, arenas and issues involved in the politics of threats. In addition to the traditional unit of analysis - national governments - this book takes into account non-governmental agents, including public opinion, the media and business.
