Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Politics professor Richard English gives an authoritative account of the origins, dynamics and current trends of modern warfare. What do we mean by modern warfare? What causes it? Why do people fight in them? And what have they achieved? English is director of the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence and Bishop Wardlaw Professor of Politics in the School of International Relations at the University of St Andrews. His books include Armed Struggle: The History of the IRA and Terrorism: How to Respond.
