Abstract:

The Naval War College, like all other defense institutions, is reeling from the rapid changes in the security outlook. From the crumbling of the Soviet empire to the crumbling domestic support for military outlays, the U. S. defense establishment faces challenges to many of the basic defense planning assumptions of the past decade. As Capt. John H. Heidt of the Naval War College commented, The threat is no longer the Russians. The threat is uncertainty. Adjusting to the rapidly changing environment is a challenge that has to be met if the safe future for the nation is to be secured --adapting the education and training of the nationss future military leaders to the changing environment is one means to ensure appropriate defense policies in the future. One is forced to wonder whether the nations war colleges require brave new curricula for the brave new world of the coming decades.
