Editor and authors set out to bring greater order and rationality into thinking about problems of security and insecurity in the Third World. What they succeed in doing, intentionally or not, is proving the existence of a compound of internal, regional and global factors that defy rational thinking and assure permanent insecurity. The book is of special value in that virtually all the contributors give the reader the benefit of a relatively sober and realistic Third World perspective without overindulging in polemics against the superpowers.
