    The Shield Of Achilles: War, Peace And The Course Of History

    By: Philip Bobbitt

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    For centuries, civilisation has been defined by epoch-making cycles of war and peace. But now our world has changed irrevocably.

    What faces us in this era of uncertainty? How do we protect ourselves against war machines that can penetrate the defences of any state? Is it too late to try?

    Visionary and prophetic, 'The Shield Of Achilles' looks back at history, at the "long war" of 1914-1990 and at the future: the death of the nation-state and the birth of a new, terrifying kind of conflict without precedent in our history.
