This book looks specifically at a number of topics that deal
with the changing nature of the state in the era of
globalization, and the impact of this transformation on
global security and stability. Each
topic is also represented by a diagram assessing and
illustrating the linkages between the challenges currently
facing states and recommendations for ways in which the
state can move forward. This book may serve as a reference
guide for practitioners, students, and academic institutions
that work to provide solutions to contemporary
conflicts and security threats. Topics addressed include the
proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, arms control,
energy security, natural disasters, the changing role of the
North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), health paradigms,
and US environmental policy.

briefs provides a valuable insight into a number of major
issues that affect the future of the international system.
The briefs are authored by acknowledged experts and brought
together in a format that provides for a succinct overview
of the challenges we face as a result of rapidly increasing
globalization. They have been skillfully edited by Dr.
Al-Rodhan, who has developed an interesting methodology to
assess the various contributions.“
