This unit examines the key concepts in security: power, conflict, and the security of the nation state. We begin by examining the evolution of the nature of the study of security from the narrow military focus of realism to broader approaches of critical security. We then look at the evolution of strategic thought from classical times to the present debate on the revolution in military affairs. We then focus on some of the current debates within the field: nuclear deterrence, nuclear strategy, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, terrorism and regional conflict and intervention.
