Threat and Response in the 21st Century

In recent years, the nature of conflict has changed. Through
asymmetric warfare radical groups and weak state actors are using
unexpected means to deal stunning blows to more powerful opponents
in the West. From terrorism to information warfare, the Wests air
power, sea power and land power are open to attack from clever, but
much weaker, enemies.

In this clear and engaging introduction, Rod Thornton unpacks
the meaning and significance of asymmetric warfare, in both
civilian and military realms, and examines why it has become such
an important subject for study. He seeks to provide answers to key
questions, such as how weaker opponents apply asymmetric techniques
against the Western world, and shows how the Wests military
superiority can be seriously undermined by asymmetric threats. The
book concludes by looking at the ways in which the US, the state
most vulnerable to asymmetric attack, is attempting to cope with
some new battlefield realities.


This is an indispensable guide to one of the key topics in
security studies today.
