Want to Beat the Enemy? Win the Information War

Bruce Berkowitz, a noted analyst at the RAND Corporation and the Hoover Institution at Stanford, has produced a readable and well-informed study of information technology and its implications for future warfare. Even though he wrote his book just before the conflict in Iraq, his observations about technology and its role in future warfare have not been radically altered by the outcome of the war to overthrow Saddam Hussein. Mr. Berkowitz was prepared to conduct such a study, given his good grasp of several critical fields related to the broader subject: military technology, Pentagon bureaucratic politics and the recent history of American defense policymaking. His book has ample vignettes of interesting people and ideas in modern United States military history, and it displays a comprehension of the science behind much of the electronics and computer revolutions. It is a perfectly fine read for anyone looking for such an overview. Full Story
