Thoroughly updated, this text provides a cogent and comprehensive analysis of the range of security issues facing Europe. Andrew Cottey focuses on why the region's development as a 'security community' has been so important and explains why this can endure even in the face of the Eurozone crisis.' - Lawrence Freedman, King's College London, UK
'Extremely accessible, comprehensive in scope and nuanced in argument, Security in 21st Century Europe provides a theoretically informed and empirically grounded analysis of an important subject. It is quite simply the finest text available and will find a prominent place on any syllabus touching on European security.' – James Sperling, University of Akron, USA
