Book Description

31 July 2014 Key Concepts in Philosophy
Encompassing a time frame from 2001 to the present day, Contemporary Military Strategy and the Global War on Terror tackles the most pressing strategic issues in relation to both theaters of operation. Readers are presented with detailed insights into the relationship between US & UK political and military elites, and the formulation of their plans for Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Alastair Finlan dives into challenges of technology, policy, and the political environment which are more than ever a critical part of statecraft. This fresh perspective on strategy in the West and how it has been applied in recent military campaigns facilitates a deep understanding of how wars have been and will be fought.

Including key terms, concepts and discussion questions for each chapter, this book is a crucial text in strategic studies, and required reading for anyone interested in the new realities of transnational terrorism and twenty-first century warfare.

Product Description

Review

This is an exceptionally fine book that must enhance Alastair Finlan's already high reputation. It offers a coherent and persuasive narrative that blends theory and practice in explanation of the appalling errors in strategy that were committed in the 2000s in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, the work is fair and balanced where it needs to be - it is not a journalistic condemnation, but rather is an excellent example of strategic studies at its best. Colin S. Gray, Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Reading, UK An excellent analysis of the (lack of) strategic thinking behind the Global War on Terror as manifested in Afghanistan and Iraq. Finlan presents a fresh, fast-paced and insightful examination of the application of military strategy in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. This is a compelling and convincing narrative on contemporary strategy that should be read by scholars and policy makers alike. Elinor Sloan, PhD Professor of International Relations, Carleton University, Canada
