    Book Review

    Frank Ledwidge begins Rebel Law with a vision to consolidate and derive comprehensive narratives surrounding lawfare—law used as a means of achieving agendas—and to provide recommendations as to how effectively policymakers and practitioners may use it to counter destabilisation in the light of unjust dissent. His experiences from years at the front end of British foreign policy form the backbone on which this book takes shape. Ledwidge acknowledges the immensity of the topics involved—war, law and insurgency in itself—and chooses to highlight only enough to express the dynamics involved in the act of insurgency and its consequences.
