The authors believe that national security is no longer simply national but also transnational and transcultural in its scope, and globalization has a significant role to play in the development of security and strategic agendas at all levels. The pursuit of global security is a transnational phenomenon which is heightened and potentially hindered by the globalization process. This publication proposes an alternative new security principle, which the editor believes is central to the understanding and attainment of lasting security and peace in today's globalized world. The principle, termed "justice-based penta-security," states that "in a globalized world, security is a pentagon of human, environmental, national, transnational and transcultural security, and global security and the security of any one state or culture cannot, therefore, be achieved without good domestic and global governance that guarantees security through justice for all individuals, states, and cultures." Through an examination of the economic, political, environmental, societal, and military links between globalization and securiy, this book provides insight into a complicated and diverse problem while proposing solutions to some of the more pressing issues that states are currently facing. This book contributes an innovative new theory and a unique perspective to the vast literature on globalization and security in a way never before achieved, making it a vital reference to any comprehensive study of these issues.
