Routledge Handbook on Middle East Security provides the fi rst comprehensive look at Middle East security issues that includes both traditional and emerging security threats. Taking a broad perspective on security, the volume off ers both analysis grounded in the ‘hard’ military and state security discourse but also delves into the ‘soft’ aspects of security employing a human security perspective. As such the volume addresses imminent challenges to security, such as the ones relating directly to the war in Syria, but also the long- term challenges. The traditional security problems, which are deep- seated, are at the risk of being exacerbated also by a lack of focus on emerging vulnerabilities in the region. While taking as a point of departure the prevalent security discourse, the volume also goes beyond the traditional focus on military or state security and considers non- traditional security challenges. This book provides a state of- the- art review of research on the key challenges for security in the Middle East; it will be a key resource for students and scholars interested in Security Studies, International Relations, Political Science and Middle Eastern studies.
