Security threats today are increasingly complex, dynamic, and asymmetric and can affect environmental factors such as energy, water, and food supply. As a result, the traditional model of nation-state-based security is insufficient to protect the United States and other democracies from the array of threats that challenge the free flow of people and commerce. A more complete picture of modern national security requires a more complete integration of the question of environmental security. 

This book draws from the various areas of burgeoning research related to environmental security to serve as an introductory text in the rapidly growing number of homeland security studies and related degree programs. The concepts, challenges, and case studies illuminate the critical role environmental security plays in overall state security, as well as in our way of life, and indeed for humanity at large.
