    Description

    The first three editions of A Quick and Dirty Guide to War not only provided essential tools for understanding wars and hot spots around the world, they delivered remarkably accurate projections on the outcomes of each conflict. War-game simulation specialists James F. Dunnigan and Austin Bay have revised their highly regarded analyses, bringing up to date not only the many conventional conflicts around the world today but the new battlegrounds that have emerged since the previous edition was published more than a decade ago - the Global War on Terror, counterinsurgency struggles around the world and the latest frontier of modern combat: cyber war. This fourth edition takes up where the last edition left off and analyzes the monumental events that have occurred since 1996 - September 11, the toppling of Saddam Hussein and the ongoing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq - while guiding listeners through dozens of other significant developments around the globe, including the tinderbox situation with Iran and oil flow through the Persian Gulf; the final disintegration of Yugoslavia; the struggle for regional influence between Brazil, Colombia and Hugo Chvez's Venezuela; Israel's attempts to deal with a fragmented Palestine Liberation Organization; China and India's growing influence in Asia and beyond; ongoing chaos and suffering on the Horn of Africa; Russia's struggle to reassert itself on the world stage; and much more. Dunnigan and Bay present an enormous amount of information in a series of concise, insightful briefings coupled with their shrewd projections of potential outcomes, making A Quick and Dirty Guide to War a thought-provoking reference on the face of war in the 21st century.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    A quick and dirty review

    This is an excellent, albeit abbreviated review of the many conflicts that are ongoing. While some of the information is outdated, it is an essential read, or listen, for anyone who wants to understand why events are unfolding as they are across our world.

    adopts the bush administration narrative

    failed analysis of most cases of war worldwide plus a biased American point of view on wars world wide . reprisal of American policy and allies and lacks objectivism on many matters

    Computer voice ?

    Interesting subject made nearly unlistenable by narrator/ lack of sound ambition - either use a professional or allow the narrator to use his voice

    Dated but still interesting to look back ten years past

    An appealing overview although at times somewhat repetitive.
    Narration okay but oscillating from the almost robotic to the verge of theatrical (names in Spanish were read like the announcement of a torero...)

    Informative, but misleading title

    I was expecting something more along the lines of Sun Tzu or some sort of West point tactical guide, but instead it was more like "A Quick and Dirty Guide to Geo-Politics over the Last 50 Years". It was well worth reading for the very thorough crash course on world history that it was, but maybe 5-10% of it was even related to war at all.

    Pflichtlektüre

    Sollte gerade in Deutschland, wo jeder einer Meinung zu allem hab zu müssen glaubt, Pflichtlektüre sein. Leider nicht mehr ganz aktuell, aber allein die Informationen über historische Abläufe, Hintergründe, ethnische Spannungen sind extrem hilfreich zur Einordnung von Geschehnissen und Konflikten wie auch deren Wahrscheinlichkeit für Gegenwart und Zukunft. Erfrischende Sprache, kein langatmiges wissenschaftliches Blabla. Soweit mir die Hintergründe zu verschiedenen Konfliktherden bekannt, erscheinen die Analysen nachvollziehbar, sauber und korrekt zu sein. Ein Muss zu Zeiten mangelnder Hintergrundinformation eines omnipräsenten Gefühls- und Gesinnungsjournalismus im Lande.
