Between Security Markets and Protection Rackets : Formations of Political Order, Paperback / softback Book

Between Security Markets and Protection Rackets : Formations of Political Order Paperback / softback

Description

Security is a social practice, which constitutes different formations of political order.

Developing a political economy of security practice, the author distinguishes these formations with a view to the actual exchanges between various providers and receivers of security services.

He thus departs from a popular perspective in political science, which charts ongoing transformations in the global security landscape along a series of categorical divisions between state and non-state or between the public and the private.

A more rewarding analytical perspective conceives the two most dominant security formations in the contemporary world as either based on commercial or on compulsory relations.
