Contractors on Deployed Military Operations: Unite... Cover Image
Added September 01, 2005
Contractors on Deployed Military Operations: United Kingdom Policy and Doctrine. Authored by Professor Matthew Uttley.
The author examines the controversies surrounding deployed contractor support, the ways that the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (MoD) has harnessed private sector capacity, and the lessons this provides for U.S. policymakers and military planners. He suggests the need for ongoing policy and doctrine refinement by defence officials as well as greater independent scrutiny of developments, not least because the use of contractors on deployed operations has an important impact on government expenditure choices, public accountability, the efficiency and effectiveness of the military establishment, and the conduct and outcome of armed conflict.

Future War/Future Battlespace: The Strategic Role of American Landpower. Authored by Dr. Steven Metz, LTC Raymond A. Millen.
The trends in the strategic environment in the development of the Future War/Future Battlespace suggest that traditional warfighting has changed in the post 9-11 era. The strategic environment can be classified into four strategic battlespaces, within which future adversaries will operate to thwart U.S. strategic initiatives.

Future Warfare Anthology, Revised Edition. Authored by Major General Robert H. Scales.
Throughout U.S. history the American military services have had an unfortunate penchant for not being ready be the next war.

The PLA and the Kosovo Conflict. Authored by Dr. June Teufel-Dreyer.
The Chinese People s Liberation Army (PLA) has also analyzed the Kosovo conflict and drawn its own conclusions. Different groups within the Chinese military drew different judgments. Dr. Dreyer argues that these differences of opinion reflect the considerable diversity of thinking about defense modernization and future war that exists within the PLA today.

Future Warfare. Authored by Major General Robert H. Scales.
Throughout U.S. history the American military services have had an unfortunate penchant for not being ready for the next war. Part of the problem has had to do with factors beyond their control: the American policy has been notoriously slow to respond to the challenges posed by dangerous enemies. On the other hand, American military institutions have been surprisingly optimistic in weighing their preparedness as they embarked on the nation's wars.
The Age of Revolutions... Cover Image

The Age of Revolutions. Authored by Lieutenant General Claudia Kennedy.
The Army operates within a global strategic environment. The parameters of warfare now and into the 21st century are much more complex. Today there is a great deal of talk about focusing on high end threats and relying on one dimension of military power, air power, to halt set-piece attacks by any would-be aggressor.

Added June 01, 1995
The Technological Fix: Weapons and the Cost of War. Authored by Dr. Alex Roland.
Indirectly, any military institute operates within its technology context. The Army of today is, for instance, in a period of technological transition from an Industrial Age army to an Information Age army. A tremendous faith in technology is an abiding American characteristic.
War in the Information Age... Cover Image
Added June 01, 1994
War in the Information Age. Authored by Colonel James M. Dubik, General Gordon R. Sullivan.
The authors discuss the ways in which the Army has changed its strategic systems over the past several years so that the Army operational and tactical forces will be able to "see" a situation, decide, adapt, and act faster and more precisely than their opponent. These changes will give strategic planners, and operational and tactical commanders, a new set of information age tools to use in theater

Land Warfare in the 21st Century. Authored by Colonel James M. Dubik, General Gordon R. Sullivan.
Change will inevitably coexist with at least three constants--the root causes of war, the nature of war, and the essence of fighting power.
