Basrur, R. M. (Ed.). (2001). Security in the New Millennium: Views from South Asia. New Delhi: India Research Press.

In the new millennium, there is a growing realization that the concept of security can no longer be confined to the narrow landscape of the military-strategic concerns of the state. The focus is increasingly shifting to ‘human security’, which centers on ordinary people and their security needs. In South Asia, the expanded people-Centric conception of security is gradually finding a voice. This volume draws attention to the diverse facets of security from the standpoint of the average South Asian man, woman and child. It explores vital security issues relating to economic well-being, ethnic identity, religion, gender and political legitimacy.
