Endless War?: Hidden Functions of the 'War on Terror'


Manufacturer: Pluto Press

Product Information

"Casts a critical light on the real motives behind war and terror. David Keen explores how winning war is rarely an end in itself; rather, war often provides cover for wider political and economic games in which strengthening the enemy is either irrelevant or positively useful. Keen devises a radical framework for analysing an unending war project where violence creates its own legitimacy and where the 'war on terror' is only the latest extension of a Cold War project.

The book draws on the author's on-the-ground investigation of wars in Sudan, Sierra Leone, northern Iraq and a range of other conflicts. It provides a new approach to conflict analysis that will be of particular interest to students across conflict studies, development studies and the social sciences."
