Rita Floyd's finely crafted study provides a wide-ranging appraisal of the issues at stake and a challenging framework for addressing them. Taking on some of the most important issues in contemporary political life, The Morality of Security is sure to inform and provoke debate for years to come.' Michael C. Williams, University of Ottawa
