Lynne Rienner Publishers | Critical Security Studies and World PoliticsKen Booth describes Theory of World Security as the culmination of a thirty-year project. His central thesis is that to respond to that crisis we need a critical theory of world security, as only emancipation can produce true security. In much of his ambition, Booth is successful. Theoretically, it delivers a more extensive version of the elements of a critical security theory than Booth outlined in his edited volume, Critical Security Studies and World Politics. Empirically, there are few if any contemporary problems not considered in his wide-ranging review of the present world. The book is written in an engaging and accessible fashion, again an explicit goal of the author.

In the following sections, it will deconstruct his fusion of security and emancipation by analyzing the ontology of the former and the logic of the latter. The essay argues that Booth subscribes to a very simplistic understanding of security and power, and the emancipation that he normatively defends contains the possibility of resurrecting the violence it seeks to eliminate. His re-conceptualization of security has a practical purpose from the very beginning and emerges out of his criticism of the realist understandings that deal mostly with the states and the strategies that states have to pursue to achieve security; his criticism is an attempt to unsettle this application of security Booth Booth completely disagrees with this claim as this will explained in a moment. Before that, it needs to analyze his supposedly exhaustive definition of security and its link with emancipation.
