Academic publishes new book on the genealogy of resilience

Dr Chris Zebrowski, School of Business and Economics, has published a new book entitled The Value of Resilience: Securing Life in the 21st Century.

The Value of Resilience, published by Routledge Press in their ‘Interventions’ series, situates the idea of resilience within the evolution of risk management and civil contingencies over the last century.

Dr Zebrowski is part of the University's Secure and Resilient Societies Research Challenge, led by Professor Mark Freeman, and his new book coincides with the back story to the group’s objectives.

The book is the first to critically examine resilience as a security value, whose ascendance is radically re-defining the ways in which security is understood and practiced in the 21st Century.
