Abstract:

In what ways will wars and the Military that fight them be different in the Information Age than in earlier ages What will this mean for the U.S. military In this third volume of the Information Age Anthology we turn finally to the task of exploring answers to these simply stated but vexing questions that provided the impetus for the first two volumes of the Information Age Anthology. In Volume I we examined some of the broader issues of the Information Age what the Information Age is how it affects commerce business and service what it means for the government and the military and how it affects international actors and the international system. In Volume II we turned to the impacts and consequences of the Information Age on national security broadly defined the nature of national security in the Information Age the threats to and opportunities for national security that may emerge in the Information Age and differing interpretations about the degree of change in national security issues that we might expect to actually encounter in the Information Age. Now in Volume III we concentrate on defense conflict and warfare in the Information Age. What characteristics will an Information Age military need to possess to meet current and future challenges If so how What is the U.S. military establishment doing to prepare for change How do military analysts in the United States view those changes How are those abroad preparing their own military establishments for change When all is said and done what does all this mean for the defense of the United States and for its ability to deter and failing this to prevail in the Information Age
