From the Gulf War until 2002, debates on the future of war seemed intoxicated by the new military technology and the promise of quick, low-risk, low-casualty conflict. Wars in Kosovo and Chechnya, did not disabuse the public, the press or seemingly the policy-makers of this perspective. Then on September 11th the myth that wars were to be fought elsewhere on Western terms was destroyed in the World Trade Center attacks. Jeremy Black's book prophetically explores the realities of war in a globalised world where growing prosperity can increase the likelihood of conflict and American power is likely to be increasingly challenged.
Jeremy Black is Professor of History at the University of Exeter, UK, and a Senior Fellow at the Center for the Study of America and the West at the Foreign Policy Research Institute in Philadelphia, USA. His books include War: A Short History, The War of 1812 and The Great War and the Making of the Modern World (all published by Continuum).
