Military Transformation and Modern Warfare: A Reference Handbook. Contemporary Military, Strategic, and Security IssuesDecember 12 , 2012
Military transformation can be understood as comprising three overlapping and sometimes competing "layers" - the conventional-force dominated revolution in military affairs, a more recent irregular warfare emphasis and a wider dimension including domestic defence, space and nuclear policy. The Western world is currently focusing its attention on transformation's middle layer, while China and Russia are focusing on the RMA and transformation's wider aspects. This dynamic indicates the United States and its allies should continue to prepare for the full range of conflicts.This book establishes the meaning of "military transformation," assesses the manner in which certain countries are transforming their military forces, discusses the relevancy of transformation efforts to modern conflict and, in drawing out the key areas of emphasis on the part of various countries, provides a window on the future global security environment. The book devotes two chapters to the United States and one each to China, Russia, NATO, Australia, Britain, Canada, France and Germany. An assessment of the relevancy of force transformation to modern warfare is included. The book contains a biographical sketch of Andrew Marshall, Andrew Krepinevich, William Owens, Arthur Cebrowski, Donald Rumsfeld, and Thomas Barnett, all of who have been involved in some aspect of military transformation.
Anni Baker offers a timely exploration of life in the armed forces, as it has been experienced by millions of men, women, and children over the past six decades. She examines the factors that shape military service and culture, from grueling training exercises to sexual relations with local women, from overseas duty to the peculiar life of the "military brat." The military, she posits, is a distinct society based on a set of common values that are sometimes, though not always, at odds with those of civilian society. The extent to which active duty personnel, family members, and civilians internalize these values dictates their comfort with military life and their choice of a military career. Through a discussion of life in the military, the author shows how the values, traditions and norms of the armed forces are articulated and shared, how they influence the individual and the institution, and what role they play in American society as a whole.
