Peter Hough lectures in International Relations and heads up this subject at Middlesex University, UK.Review:
"Making international relations seem complicated is easy because they are. To make one of IR’s key concepts both comprehensive and comprehensible is a much more difficult skill which Hough has mastered extremely well."
Lloyd Pettiford, Professor of International Relations at Nottingham Trent University, UK
'The third edition of Peter Hough's book is a comprehensive yet accessible survey of the issue of 'security' in international relations. It will be required reading for students and experts will also find much of interest. Highly recommended'
Professor Jeffrey Haynes, London Metropolitan University, UK.
