Rezension" As we have come to expect from a scholar of his intellectual wit and calibre, Coker delivers a masterful, not to mention thoroughly enjoyable, analysis." RUSI Journal" Christopher Coker is in a class by himself. His nimble, even dazzling 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." Survival" War in an Age of Risk is an imaginative and penetrating study of the new strategic context by one of Britain&apos s most creative and thoughtful strategic analysts. It is an outstanding work." Philip C. Bobbitt, University of Texas" Christopher Coker, perhaps the most incisive philosopher of war of our time, explains how the evolution of Western societies has influenced how those societies perceive and wage war. It is likely that historians, with the benefit of hindsight, will consider War in an Age of Risk an unusually perspicacious and seminal work." Dr H. R. McMaster, Colonel, US Army" Drawing on philosophy and sociology as well as military history, Christopher Coker presents a clear vision of what war will be all about in years to come. When historians of the future try to understand how wars of modern mass armies developed into the never-ending conflicts of risk societies they will read War in an Age of Risk. Commanders and policy-makers have the good fortune to be able to read it today."

Wars throughout history have been fought in the name of ideology,religion and the pursuit of peace. Our thinking about war -when it is justified, how it should be fought and how it isperceived - has changed dramatically over time. Whereas inthe past war has been seen as a battle of wills, this provocativeand illuminating new book shows how war has evolved into anexercise in risk management.In a rare blend of political science, sociology, history andcultural thought, Christopher Coker peels away the layers ofmeaning shrouding our current understanding of war and warfare.Using the ideas of writers such as Zygmunt Bauman, Ulrich Beck andFrank Furedi, he shows that risk has become the language ofbusiness, politics and public policy and so we should not besurprised that it has now become the language of war. The bookhighlights the increasing difference between homeland security andnational security in the modern world, arguing that the defense ofthe citizen is often now more challenging than the defense of thestate. By demonstrating the changing character and complexity ofconflict from World War I to the current the current fight againstterrorism, the book provides a powerful and highly distinctiveaccount of the re-branding of war in an age of risk.This book is set to ignite debate amongst students and scholarsof international politics as well as appealing to anyone interestedin war and its place in contemporary society.
