Military forces are now confronted, not only with the non-conventional threats of terrorism but the moral dilemmas of humanitarianism, intervention and human rights. Gwyn Prins explores these conflicting impulses using a variety of fascinating examples: the September 11th attacks and the history of 'spectacular' terrorism, humanitarian intervention in Bosnia, Kosovo, West Africa and elsewhere, the extradition of General Pinochet for human rights abuses and the nuclear issue, in the light of ongoing conflict between India and Pakistan.
Wide-ranging and challenging, this book will interest all those seeking to understand the enormous recent changes in military strategy and global politics.

Review:

'It is always enjoyable to listen to Gwyn Prins. He is entertaining, fluent in delivery and invariably demonstrates a very broad knowledge of the world and of the various intellectual interpretations that might be deduced from analysing it. This publication is a good opportunity to get comprehensively to grips with his thinking....it does not disappoint in that sense.' - The Naval Review

'Prins has been making eminent sense of security issues for more than a decade ... if you are looking for something more rigorous, judicious and academic, then try The Heart of War.' - Dominick Donald, The Guardian

'The book offers several insights into the moral and political dilemmas faced by armed forces in the contemporary world.' - Political Studies Review

'Nicely constructed and provides a coherent argument ... Prins argues convincingly.' - International Affairs
