The articles contained in this collection from International Security, one of the leading scholarly journals in the field, date from 1983 to 1995. After a thoughtful article written by Richard Ullman during a particularly intense period of East-West tension, the collection proceeds to examine environmental and demographic security problems, and then to explore the consequences of nationalism for international politics. The editors describe these subjects as neglected during the Cold War, but perhaps it would be fairer to say that they were simply less important. One comes away from this volume with a renewed sense of just how difficult it will be to conceptualize security issues adequately after the Cold War, despite the authors' instructive efforts to do so.
