What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Proxy Warfare offers a compelling survey of likely explanations for why states and non-state actors use other parties to influence the course and outcomes of civil and international disputes. By separating the concept of proxy warfare from traditional understandings of third-party intervention in conflict, Mumford makes an important contribution to our understanding of war and international relations."
James J. Wirtz, U.S. Naval Postgraduate School

"An original and important contribution to our understanding of contemporary conflict and the shape of future wars."
Caroline Kennedy, University of Hull

"This crucial book brings much-needed conceptual clarification, historical depth and empirically-grounded analysis to the phenomenon of proxy warfare, which will undoubtedly become an increasingly employed, yet potentially pernicious, tool of indirect intervention in local conflicts around the globe."
Sergio Catignani, Strategy & Security Institute, Exeter University
