What does the rise of irregular military forces such as ISIS mean for the future security of the world? After more than a decade of the war on terror, security specialists thought that Islamist paramilitary movements were in decline; however the threat from ISIS in Syria and Iraq, Boko Haram in Nigeria, al Qaida in Yemen, the chaos in Libya and the return of the Taliban in Afghanistan have all shown that to be wishful thinking. Paul Rogers, the distinguished global security specialist, provides a much needed look at the rise of such global terrorist movements from the margins and presents a new argument as troubling as it is compelling.
‘The catastrophe of the so-called ‘war on terror’ exposed in brilliant detail by the towering intellect of Prof. Paul Rogers.’

- Owen Jones

‘For decades, Paul Rogers, the indefatigable, lateral- thinking, emeritus professor of peace studies, has warned about the consequences of western military adventures, urging us to consider the root causes of conflict… important and thought-provoking’

- Richard Norton-Taylor, The Guardian

‘Casting much needed light on the present dire global situation… Irregular War is not merely a jeremiad aimed at the woeful Western approach.’

- New Internationalist
