about

An analysis of U.S. Special Operations Command, at the center of America’s twenty-first-century wars

This original and accessible book is a comprehensive, authoritative analysis of U.S. Special Operations.
 
U.S. Special Operations Command trains and equips units to undertake select military activities, frequently high-risk missions, often for the purposes of counterterrorism and counterinsurgency. Since 9/11, impelled by an attack on U.S. soil, these forces have been a central instrument of America’s military campaign—operating in about one hundred countries on any given day. This fight—neither hot war nor cold peace—was launched and executed as a new type of global war in 2001 and has since splintered into a spectrum of regional conflicts. The result are our nation’s grey wars: hazy and lethal.
 
This contemporary history, incorporating extensive interviews and archival research by security studies expert N. W. Collins, delves deeply into the transformation of these forces since 9/11.
N. W. Collins is director of the Defense and Security Program at Columbia University. Collins teaches security studies and has received grants from, among others, the University of Chicago, Harvard University, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Wilson Center.
