"A compelling piece of engaged social science (that) does much to clarify what is at stake in contemporary warfare." International Affairs"The New Western Way of War is about new ways of interpreting war. By engaging innovative concepts like "global surveillance" or "risk-transfer", Martin Shaw offers us an intriguing glimpse of a world beyond war." Mary Kaldor, London School of Economics and Political Science"Roll over Clausewitz: in the global war on terror, politics has become a continuation of war by other means, including global surveillance, disinformation, unlawful detention, abrogation of civil liberties, faith-based violence, pervasive fear, accidental killing, and the transfer of risk to an increasingly vulnerable citizenry. Martin Shaw targets this new western way of war with the kind of discriminate intelligence and discrete passion that makes all the smart bombs and latter-day Slim Pickens riding them look very dumb indeed." James Der Derian, Brown UniversityReseña del editor:
In this new work, Martin Shaw charts the development of a new warfare, after Vietnam, through the Falklands, the Gulf, Kosovo and Afghanistan, and argues that, in Iraq and the War on Terror, the USA has consistently flouted the key rules that enabled Western states to fight these earlier wars successfully.
