Full Description:

This work features the fresh thinking of twenty-eight leading authors from a variety of military and national security disciplines.  Following an introduction by Lt. Gen. James Dubik, Commander I Corps, U.S. Army, the anthology first considers the general question of whether there is a distinctly American way of war.  Dr. Colin Gray's opening essay "The American Way of War: Critique and Implications" provides a state of the question perspective.  Sections on operational art, with writers addressing the issues in both conventional and small wars; stability and reconstruction; and intelligence complete the volume.  Among the well-known contributors are Robert Scales, Mary Kaldor, Ralph Peters, Jon Sumida, Grant Hammond, Milan Vego, and T.X. Hammes.  The anthology is part of a larger Rethinking the Principles project, sponsored by the Office of Force Transformation and the U.S. Navy to examine approaches to the future of warfare.  Footnotes, index, and a bibliographic essay make the work a useful tool for students of war and general readers alike.

  • Selected as part of the U.S. Army's Chief of Staff Professional Reading List
