Kaldor's analysis offers a basis for a cosmopolitan political response to these wars, in which the monopoly of legitimate organized violence is reconstructed on a transnational basis and international peacekeeping is reconceptualized as cosmopolitan law enforcement. This approach also has implications for the reconstruction of civil society, political institutions, and economic and social relations.
This second edition has been revised and updated to deal fully with the implications of 'the new wars' in the post 9-11 world. In a new Chapter, Kaldor shows how old-war thinking in Iraq has greatly exacerbated what is, in many ways, the archetypal new war - with insurgency, chaos and the occupying forces' lack of direction prescient of a different kind of conflict now emerging in the twenty-first century. Like its predecessor, the second edition of New & Old Wars will be essential reading for students ofinternational relations, politics and conflict studies as well as for all those interested in the changing nature and prospect of warfare.
