About This Book

Military power - how is it used and how should it be used? This leading expert on global security provides a penetrating look at war and the role of the military in the twenty-first century. "Past evils, out of whose long shadow it is our duty to ensure that something of good shall come", are considered in this book, which substantially increases the readers understanding of contemporary global politics. Gwyn Prins explores the issues with which the military are now confronted: Non-conventional threats of terrorism on one front and the moral dilemmas of humanitarian intervention and human rights on another. Fascinating examples are provided in this wide-ranging and challenging book which provides insights into the themes of power, conflict and human rights. The author is professor at both the London School of Economics and Political Science as well as at Columbia University.
