The Rise of Chaoplexic Warfare?

That’s what I’ll be calling the piece I’m writing: an extended essay built around Antoine Bousquet’s The Scientific Way of Warfare: Order and Chaos on the Battlefields of Modernity (Hurst & Co. Publishers, December 2008). I’ve mentioned it  and his research  on complexity in international relations in passing,  previously; I had the opportunity to review the manuscript earlier this year, and it’s simply excellent.

The essay will be a detailed review of The Scientific Way of Warfare, through which I’ll make a number of arguments and observations from my own research on battlespace regulatory regimes and sanctuary concepts and practices. I’m looking to develop this for magazine publication, though, rather than for a scholarly periodical, as a pre-publication lead-in to my own Hurst book, Sanctuary in Militant Thought and Practice.
