In The Future of War, Lawrence Freedman, arguably Britain's leading academic strategist, examines the build up to convicts throughout history and how policymakers are intent on predicting that the next war will look like.
Freedman addresses many key issues and questions surrounding war, such as: How do you define war today? How does this affect the legal issues connected with warfare? What today is a "just war"? As well as examining the political and military planning for future conflicts, and the successes and shortcomings of this planning.
Well written and thoughtful, the book is a profound reflection on the never ending quest for peace through the use of warfare.
