From the Publisher"As we have come to expect from a scholar of his intellectual witand calibre, Coker delivers a masterful, not to mention thoroughlyenjoyable, analysis."
"Christopher Coker is in a class by himself. His nimble, evendazzling arguments are buttressed by a rich body of quotations,allusions and references to English, French and German philosophy,cinema and literature, to the natural sciences and pop-sociology,and sometimes even to more esoteric specialties."
"War in an Age of Risk is an imaginative and penetratingstudy of the new strategic context by one of Britain's mostcreative and thoughtful strategic analysts. It is an outstandingwork."
Philip C. Bobbitt, University of Texas
"Christopher Coker, perhaps the most incisive philosopher of warof our time, explains how the evolution of Western societies hasinfluenced how those societies perceive and wage war. It is likelythat historians, with the benefit of hindsight, will considerWar in an Age of Risk an unusually perspicacious and seminalwork."
Dr H. R. McMaster, Colonel, US Army
"Drawing on philosophy and sociology as well as militaryhistory, Christopher Coker presents a clear vision of what war willbe all about in years to come. When historians of the future try tounderstand how wars of modern mass armies developed into thenever-ending conflicts of risk societies they will read War inan Age of Risk. Commanders and policy-makers have the goodfortune to be able to read it today."
