Overview

"Fast becoming a classic in the shadowy world of trigger pullers and three-letter agencies. "Brave New War." . . is simply the single best available source on how to avoid losing this global struggle."
—Thomas P. M. Barnett, "Esquire"

"For my money, John Robb, a former Air Force officer and tech guru, is the futurists' futurist. Robb is convinced that technology will empower the little guy. The difference is that Robb thinks the little guy is just as likely to wear a mask and carry a Kalashnikov as he is to make home-brewed beer."
—"Slate"

In this groundbreaking book, controversial terrorism expert John Robb explains how the same technology that enabled globalization allows small, ad hoc bands of insurgents and criminals to wage a chaotic global war against larger adversaries. With chilling, real-world examples, he shows how terrorists can carry out inexpensive actions—like sabotaging an oil pipeline or knocking out a power grid—that disrupt vital systems and generate a huge return. Robb details how combating the shutdown of the world's oil, high-tech, and financial markets could cost us the thing we've come to value the most—global economic and cultural integration—and explains what we must do now to safeguard against this new method of global guerrilla warfare.
