They also propose the development of a more rounded concept of security as a 'public good' and spell out in particular how what they term 'anchored pluralism' may contribute to a more grounded and progressive understanding of the term at the national and international level.
An important and timely book which should be read will beyond the borders of criminology. In this well researched, wide-ranging study, Loader and Walker deepen our understanding of the meaning and sources of 'security'; rethink the state's role in its provision and governance; and develop an important argument about security's potential for building democratic political community. Both camps make the mistake of treating security and democracy as at odds with each other, with the first seeing security as justifying the curtailment of democracy, and the second fearing that democracy fuels the demand for security at the expense of individual liberty.
By contrast, Loader and Walker see security as a public good that democracy plays a key role in promoting and taming.
A civilised and innovative approach to a topic that has been all too often understood in a crude and barbaric manner. On writing about security today 1.

The priority of the state makes it even more complicated to understand this important tension in security.
In particular it raises some doubts concerning the identification task.
I would argue that such an explanation risks becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy, stating that it must be the state because historically it has always been the state. With reference to the global aspects, all the attention paid to the domestic facet of security and of its dynamic, let me now turn to the lack of a real international dimension of this theory. Whereas the f oreign p olicy is totally missing, the dynamics through which relations with states are managed  , as there are no relations between states on a common level outside their borders, given that everything is internalised on the domestic arena.
Finally, starting from the Eurocentrism critique generally addressed to the Critical Security Studies by R. Walker  , Behnke  and Salter  , I would like to underscore a different meaning of it. In this sense, given the close connection between Europe and liberal-democracies, I would broaden it to well-working-democracycentrism. I briefly discussed the interesting aspects of it as well as what the background literature identified as uncertainties.
I have illustrated how they work together to achieve the final targets of the project, the notion of axiomatic security and anchored pluralism. Compared to the other main critical literature it is interesting how Loader and Walker represent a point between the Copenhagen School and schools of thought that claim the disappearance of the state. However their focus is very much centred on the domestic domain; a choice that can denote a certain originality but that, at the same time, exposes a weak theorisation of the international and global dimension of the whole project.
In this sense, reframing how this theory suggests interesting points on the discourse about security, in most of its sections it is lacking a strong theoretical framework.
This reinforces my conviction that a deeper analysis and reflection on the aforementioned ideas, which this paper could not and was not intended to offer, might help to better develop the potential civilising effect of security that Loader and Walker seem not being able to come alive.
