Part of the Key Concepts in Political Science book series

Abstract

Security is an essential precondition of an ordered human existence; it is natural for men to take precautions against danger. Governments must provide a secure environment which would allow people to pursue their economic and social goals without undue anxiety and fear. The concept of security covers every facet of life, and governments find it difficult to meet every contingency which might arise. The actual process of providing social and economic security has too frequently brought about a condition of insecurity caused by excessive state intereference in private matters.
