Security in a Post-Cold War World

  • Robert G. Patman

About this book


For much of the post-war era, the substance and scope of international security was defined by the parameters of the Cold War. But the end of the Cold War has created a new global context. This book seeks to map out the nature of post-Cold War security by exploring the patterns of international conflict, weighing non-state challenges to security, examining inter-state cooperation in the security field and evaluating the security dynamics of the Asia-Pacific region.
