Paul Rogers has continued to focus on trends in international conflict, developing an analysis of the linkages between socio-economic divisions, environmental constraints and international insecurity. Much of his work concentrates on western military responses to regional conflicts and political violence, and he is also concerned with those trends in political violence likely to have the greatest impact on wealthy industrialised states. Since the New York and Washington attacks he has been analysing US responses, especially in relation to Afghanistan, Iraq and al-Qaida and its affiliates. The second edition of his book, Losing Control: Global Security in the 21st Century (Pluto Press, 2002), has been translated into Japanese, and an Italian translation is pending. Paul wrote a widely-quoted report for the Oxford Research Group, The War on Terror: Winning or Losing? that was published on the second anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. His most recent book is A War on Terror: Afghanistan and After, (Pluto Press, January 2004). During 2003, Paul contributed over 300 radio and TV interviews to radio and TV stations and networks across the world, he wrote for The Independent on Sunday, and continued his weekly column on international security for the Open Democracy web journal.. link
Seems like a nice guy.
Paul Rodgers is a very good singer. His first band was Free which had the hit "Alright Now". After that band, he formed the more notable Bad Company. Then, in the 80's, he joined up with Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin in the short-lived (and under-rated IMO) band, The Firm. I like his style, but I'm not sure how good he will sound singing "Freddie" Queen material. Guess we will see.
