Trends and Transition in Security Expertise from Deterrence to Climate Change and Back Again (Routledge Novemeber 2017)
RELEASED: November 14, 2017
The scope of Security and International Affairs (SIA) research has expanded tremendously since the end of the Cold War to include topics beyond the realm of war studies or military statecraft. A field once devoted solely to the study of conventional military and nuclear security issues has diversified to include foci often considered nontraditional, including peace and conflict, political, economic, environmental, and human security.
In this exciting new volume, McGann has undertaken a quantitative and qualitative study of SIA think tanks, looking at global and regional trends in their research. He argues that the end of the Cold War marked a fundamental shift within the field of defense and security studies among think tanks and academics. Tracking the evolution of security as understood by researchers and policymakers is vital as the world follows the path of the “Four Mores”: more issues, more actors, more competition, and more conflict. As we move forward into a world of rapid change and ubiquitous uncertainty, think tanks will only become more prominent and influential. This will be an important resource for students and scholars of security studies, global governance, and think tanks.
The volume concludes with an assessment of the future of Security and International Affairs studies and raises the possibility of a return to a traditional security focus driven by recent events in Europe and the Middle East. This will be an important resource for students and scholars of security studies, global governance, and think tanks.
Think Tanks, Foreign Policy and the Emerging Powers (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018)
Due: July 9, 2018
This book aims to understand the changing role of think tanks in a sample of states with growing relevance in international affairs. The contributing authors present twelve case studies that explore how security and international affairs think tanks in emerging powers collaborate with their policymakers to meet current and anticipate future foreign policy and security challenges. These case studies include examples from Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Nigeria, Qatar, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, and Vietnam. The authors identify and explicate the unique foreign policy challenges that these emerging powers face, as well as the strategies and programs that have been developed to effectively respond to these policy issues.
Think Tanks and the Emerging Power Policy Networks (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018)

This is a companion publication to the Think Tanks, Foreign Policy and the Emerging Powers book length manuscript. The Foreign Policy Challenges manuscript focuses on 4 emerging power countries: Brazil, China, India and Turkey and explores the foreign policy challenges they face and how think tanks are helping them meet those challenges.
The Emerging Powers Policy Networks manuscript explores how a group of emerging power countries have created global policy networks of emerging power countries to support the interest and the policy agenda of the emerging powers in global forums like the G20.
