There are many definitions and discussions of what is meant by ""collective security"". Much debate, mostly legal, centres around the meaning of terms such as ""threat of the peace"" and ""breach of the peace"" and the more judgmental concept of ""aggression"". Many different explanations and applications are explored in the essays in this volume which brings together articles on collective security law and its role in the wider collective security debate.
