Most of the contributions in this volume originated as papers for two workshops of the Anniversary Conference of Tilburg University that was held in Tilburg, the Netherlands , on 26-28 March 2003. The Conference was entitled ""Sustainable Ties in the Information Society."" One of the workshops was on ""The Information Society and Its Discontents: The Search for ‘New' Recipes and Reform""; the other one was on ""Social Cohesion, Information Society and Education."" In light of obvious overlap of themes and content, after the Conference it was decided to join the efforts of the two work shops, and to strive for an integrated publication.

The Globalization of Security is an important rethinking of the connections between globalization and security, focusing on a conceptual examination of the role of the state combined with key case studies. The book provides an analysis of the changing nature of security issues through three interlinking ways of conceptualizing the globalization of security: the expansion of the scope of threat, thinking about security in ‘global’ terms, and the development of transnational networks of power. Three cases are examined to provide potential examples of the globalization of security: nuclear weapons and the globalization of threat, the globalization of the arms industry, and the global security aspects of migration and citizenship. The book provides a novel historical sociological approach to the globalization of security, advancing both the understanding of security and the theory of state power in international relations.
