Abstract:

The nature and character of future conflict has recently become an important topic in both civilian and military circles. This document is meant to provide the reader with a basic understanding of the recent literature that has examined the implications and consequences of future conflict. The end of the Cold War has not diminished the possibility of confrontation and conflict. Because of this, the United States must look to the horizon and attempt to identify and define the threats and challenges that will affect our national security. The books that were abstracted for this document offer the reader with a conceptual foundation as to what the implications and consequences of future conflict might be.
