Intelligence in An Insecure World Third Edition


In this third edition of their classic guide to the field, Peter Gill and Mark Phythian set out a comprehensive framework for the study of intelligence, discussing how states organise the production – collection, analysis and dissemination – of intelligence, how it is acted upon, why it may fail and how the process should be governed in order to uphold democratic rights. Fully revised and updated throughout, the book covers recent developments including the Snowden leaks and the problems facing intelligence in the realm of counter terrorism following the recent wave of attacks in Western Europe. PETER GILL is an Honorary Visiting Fellow in the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Leicester. MARK PHYTHIAN is Professor of Politics and International Relations at the University of Leicester.

Religion and International Security LEE MARSDEN

Religious violence is on the rise globally. But how and why do so many claim to act in the name of God to inflict deliberate human suffering? In this book, Lee Marsden explores the return of religion as a major cause of insecurity in the contemporary world. He guides readers through the different theoretical perspectives surrounding the study of religion and security, arguing that the secular bias which marginalised the role played by religion in recent times must change to reflect the realities of the emerging post-secular international order. Packed with examples from around the world, the book offers a thoughtful and nuanced exploration of religion and security through key themes such as religiously motivated and inspired terrorism and warfare, the human security of women and gay people in religiously dominated communities, and the capacity for religious communities and leaders to heal conflict through peacebuilding. LEE MARSDEN is Senior Lecturer in International Relations at the University of East Anglia.
