New Challenges, New Tools for Defense Decisionmaking - Stuart E. Johnson - Google Книги
Military into a more adaptive and mobile force capable of dealing with the challenges of the 21st Century. This book is a collection of 13 papers that were written prior to that war to help DOD decision makers guide what was sometimes called the Revolution in Military Affairs RMA. It is a remarkably uneven collection. While some papers offer real insights others reveal a lamentable lack of reflection on the part of the writers.
- Signs of Men Who Cannot Fully Love - Why & How to Understand It (Pocket Coach Series).
- Lesson Plans The Decameron.
- Maggie on the Bounty (Maggie MacKay Magical Tracker Book 3);
There are several examples that can be given to illustrate this lack nof reflection: Asymmetric warfare is the term used to describe any war in which the weaker side chooses to avoid set piece battles and conventional tactics in favor of guerilla tactics, terrorist tactics, or both. In any case the target presented to the stronger side is minimized. The use of WMD as an equalizer is widely feared, but actually has not been used effectively by either guerillas or terrorists to date. The author of this paper appears unaware of this.
In a similar manner Martin Libicki in his two papers on information technology appears to ignore essential issues related to his subject in terms of military applications. He also tap dances around the meaning of information architecture. As a result neither paper really serves much purpose nor do they make the obvious association of information technology and fighting asymmetrical warfare.
What he should have included in his first paper was this fairly standard definition: Information network architecture refers to the structural organization of the communications and computer equipment, protocols, and transmission links whose integration constitutes a network.
A network is such an organizational structure that is under a single technical authority. In his second paper he should have provided more of a discussion along these lines: Specifically, it is a command, control, computer, communications intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance C4ISR system.
The Global Information Grid GIG is a project to create a worldwide, dedicated, and secure information network that would enable C4ISR systems and associated military operations everywhere under all conditions. One would hope that this rather mixed effort is an aberration and not an indicator that RAND is losing its touch.

It is still easy to underestimate how much the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War and then the terrorist attacks of September 11, transformed the task of American foreign and defense policymaking. In place of predictability if a sometimes terrifying predictability , the world is now very unpredictable.
In place of a single overriding threat and benchmark by which all else could be measured, a number of possible threats have arisen, not all of them states. In place of force-on-force engagements, U. This book frames the challenges for defense policy that the transformed world engenders, and it sketches new tools for dealing with those challenges from new techniques in modeling and gaming, to planning based on capabilities rather than threats, to personnel planning and making use of "best practices" from the private sector.
