Pirates, Terrorists, and Warlords explores threats to national and international security in the past and present, and what they mean for the future.

Contributing writers include Martha Crenshaw, T. X. Hammes, Russell Howard, Gene Cristy, and Yosef Kuperwasser, as well as academics from Naval War College, Marine Corps War College, and Standford University. This book explores insurgency-related issues such as domestic terrorism, globalization of armed groups, children on the battlefield, religious influence on armed rights, and more.
