Introduction: National Security State in the Era of Globalization
Why is it important?
This chapter begins with a discussion of the purpose of the book, which is to test the main elements of the globalization and security paradigm against the behavior of the world's national security apparatuses, from the end of the Cold War through 2008. It defines the terms globalization and national security state; discusses a four-fold framework for distinguishing the responses to globalization of four different categories of states; and describes the study design. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
