Description:
"The contemporary trend is for conflicts to be waged below the level of total war, with an alarming proclivity visible amongst the contestants to ignore, or at best pay lip-service only, to the humaneness enshrined as an irrevocable constant in a 'fair war'. Military forces are now preparing to meet and defeat adversaries who are not the traditional foes of nations ... but irregular forces that depend on asymmetry, terrorism, guerrilla tactics, insurgencies and criminal activities to question the legitimacy of a nation state for reasons of ideology, both political and religious ... This book is a compilation of disparate thoughts, but all on the same subject -- the employment of air power against non-state entities committed to violent action against the state"--Preface.
