Book review

The third volume in the book series "Politics of Security" links two fields of research that have been receiving considerable attention in the historical and social sciences for some time: Security and the Future. It shows how notions of security and the future were interrelated and developed political dynamics across epochs. For conceptions of security and the future have always involved questions of power. The historical and social science case studies range from religious diagnoses of the end times and preventive management of the future in the early modern period to efforts to achieve a common security in international law, from security against epidemics to diagnoses of a nuclear end of the world in the Cold War, from the security dilemma of state surveillance practices in a liberal state system to discourses on sustainability and international competitiveness.
