Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Genocide in Rwanda, instability in the Middle East, anarchy on the Internet — insecurities abound. But do they occur "naturally, " or are they, as this pathbreaking volume suggests, cultural and social productions? Bringing together scholars from political science and anthropology, this collection of essays redirects long-standing views on culture as both a source of insecurity and an object of analysis.<P>The authors present studies whose topics range from traditional security concerns, such as the Cuban missile crisis, the Korean War, and he Middle East, to less conventional issues, including the Internet and national security, multiculturalism and regional economy in New Mexico.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 363-412) and index.
