Nimble Books has just released the Kindle version of Daniel Abbott’s Handbook of 5GW. That’s “fifth-generation warfare” for you noobs. I wrote the chapter on “Piracy, Human Security and 5GW in Somalia.”
From my intro:
No continent poses less of a traditional military threat to the United States than Africa. But in an age of 5GW, where subtle actors can exploit humanitarian, economic and other crises to undermine the power and legitimacy of the industrial state, no continent poses a greater non-traditional threat. An increasingly volatile Africa begs for greater U.S. intervention and risks corrupting that very intervention, turning American strength into weakness.
“The views within The Handbook of 5GW vary widely,” Zenpundit observes, “as does the disciplinary approach of the authors, intending to stimulate thought, explore possible scenarios that range from the pragmatic and real to the imaginative and ideal.”
Hardcover edition launches in September.
