MEDIA REVIEWS

A timely and immensely relevant book, Ezrow's work will be indispensable to anyone who wants to understand how violent non-state actors fit into traditional understandings of International Relations. Drawing on examples from across the globe this text provides a rich, detailed and erudite argument as to why violent non-state actors are, perhaps, the greatest threat to human security in existence today. This makes this text a must read for students of International relations, Security Studies, Terrorism Studies, Criminology or Organised Crime as it provides a new and refreshing perspective on why non-state actors choose to use violence.

-- John Bahadur Lamb

This is a timely and important book that provides a comprehensive overview of violent non-state actors (VNSAs) that continue to pose some of the most serious challenges to state and human security in the present era. Broad in scope and parsimonious in its argument this book is an essential reading for all those interested in understanding VNSAs and comprehending strategies for dealing with them.

-- Klejda Mulaj
