Provides an analysis of the nature of conflict in the contemporary world, centering on what is new, if anything, about the conflicts which have come to be seen as defining the character of the post-Cold War world. Covers both the role of key state actors as well as international organizations, and the more diffuse threats associated with the environment, religious radicalism, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Jones teaches history and politics of the modern Middle East at the University of Leeds. Kennedy-Pipe is a reader in politics at the University of Durham. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c.
