The events of 9/11 and the subsequent US-led war on terror have created a new level of awareness about security in the international arena. The invasion of Iraq and the attempts to reconstruct that state have also focused the world's attention on the link between development and security. In this book, however, the authors argue that although the events of 9/11 and the war on terror have cast new light on the security-development nexus, this is really a rediscovery of an old debate rather than a new phenomenon.
