Pub. Date:
Bellamy (a researcher analyst at the Parliamentary Library, New Zealand Parliament) and DeRouen (political science, U. of Alabama, US) present 48 country-specific chapters (with the exception of two covering the former Soviet Republics and Oceania) reviewing contemporary human security matters. Each chapter provides basic information on country location, jurisdiction, natural resources, level of development, and environmental issues. Each outlines a brief history of the country from settlement and provides profiles of demographics, basic infrastructure, economy, and social indicators. Key issues of current politics are covered alongside information on political and legal institutions and crime statistics. Information on foreign affairs is included in reference to development and economic cooperation. Security organizations are profiled and issues of justice and human rights are addressed. The prominence of the United States in the title of the reference appears to be justified partly by the selected countries being ones of relatively current concern to the United States (e.g. Afghanistan, China, Colombia, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, North Korea, Taiwan, Venezuela, etc.) and partly because each chapter includes discussions of relations with the United States and connected security issues.
