About the Author

Andrew Mumford is Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at the University of Nottingham


"A brief yet trenchant analysis on a long-neglectedphenomenon." LSE Review of Books " Proxy Warfare offers a compelling survey of likelyexplanations for why states and non-state actors use other partiesto influence the course and outcomes of civil and internationaldisputes. By separating the concept of proxy warfare fromtraditional understandings of third-party intervention in conflict,Mumford makes an important contribution to our understanding of warand international relations." James J. Wirtz, U.S. Naval Postgraduate School "An original and important contribution to our understanding ofcontemporary conflict and the shape of future wars." Caroline Kennedy, University of Hull "This crucial book brings much-needed conceptual clarification,historical depth and empirically-grounded analysis to thephenomenon of proxy warfare, which will undoubtedly become anincreasingly employed, yet potentially pernicious, tool of indirectintervention in local conflicts around the globe." Sergio Catignani, Strategy & Security Institute, ExeterUniversity "The book has been carefully crafted into five chapters basedon extensive research and in-depth analysis. The author hassuccessfully captured the essence of proxy warfare and has beenable to put forth explanations for its causes, conduct andconsequences through number of case studies. This book will servewell for scholars, military commanders and policymakersalike." Sanjiv Tomar, Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses, NewDelhi
