Description: "For my money, John Robb, a former Air Force officer and tech guru, is the futurists' futurist."-Slate In Brave New War, controversial terrorism expert John Robb argues that the shift from state-against-state conflicts to wars against small, ad-hoc bands of like-minded insurgents will lead to a world with as many tiny armies as there are causes to fight for. Our new enemy will be looking for gaps in the system where a small, cheap action-on an oil pipeline or the power grid-will generate a huge return. Taking steps to combat the shutdown of the world's oil, high-tech, and financial markets could cost us the thing we've come to value the most: worldwide economic and cultural integration. Brave New War makes the debate-changing argument we can't afford to ignore. John Robb (Boston, MA) is a former U.S. counterterrorism operation planner and commander who now advises corporations on the future of terrorism, infrastructure, and markets. His writings on war have appeared in the New York Times and Fast Company.
