Abstract:

Although much of the Revolution in Military Affairs RMA debate centers on the notion that the Information Age represents a Third Wave paradigm shift, the Information Age is only one of the components of the Third Wave. The Third Wave is marked not by a paradigm shift, but the utter lack of a paradigm. Discussions about the RMA or, as it is increasingly being called, Revolution in Security Affairs, as some call it should reflect the specific conditions existing in the Third Wave, in this regard, the Tofflers analysis is incomplete.
