The sheer breadth of topics covered in The New World Disorder: Challenges and Threats in an Uncertain World is incredibly impressive. Hitting on pressing global security challenges such as terrorism, the conflict in Ukraine, and the United Kingdom's nuclear deterrent and Brexit, this tome addresses many issues of relevance to both scholars and policymakers. Taken together, the authors make a compelling case for the beginning of a new period of disorder and international transition.

Larry Black and his team of excellent scholars provide us with a high-level analysis of defining cases and issues in the growing world disorder. As usual Larry Black takes us out the conventional wisdom. Leaving aside recipes for a new order the essays of this book offer stimulating ideas and perspectives to circumvent the very possible worse case scenarios.
