Abstract

It is encouraging to find a valuable contribution to the understanding of the complexities of human security and how it can be integrated with development programmes. This edited book of 118 pages contains an introduction by Marie Muller, one of the editors, and eight chapters with no glossary or index. Each chapter ends with a list of references. The book is the result of a series of conferences between the South African and Netherlands Pugwash groups. It is divided into two parts, the first, conceptual and general, comprises four chapters, while the latter four ‘praxis’ chapters being more applicable to the Southern African policy and governance context.
