Michael Keane's in-depth collection of terms dealing with modern strategy and tactics is both impressive and engaging. While other works remain focused on nuclear strategy or the Cold War, the thrust here is on modern terminology—such things as "axis of evil," "CNN effect," and "military operations other than war." Historical examples supplement the definitions and quotes from leading strategic thinkers provide further insights. While the contents are professional and accurate, the author is not afraid to inject relevant humor and color to make the book enjoyable to read as well as edifying. It is sure to be a welcome reference for defense strategists and concerned citizens alike.
