Future of US Warfare (Hardcover) (Scott Nicholas Romaniuk & Francis Grice)
about this item
The primary aim of this book is to provide a clear and comprehensive depiction of the types of conflict that the United States is likely to become involved with in the future, as well as the methods of warfare that it may employ within these struggles. While a number of scholarly and policy books have previously considered some of the potential features of US warfare in the future, many of these writings are either outdated, or have limited their focus to just one or two of the main types of warfare that may occur and omitted consideration of the others. This has prevented the generation of a clear, holistic, up-to-date, and fully representative prediction of U.S. warfare at a strategic level. This book intends to ameliorate this deficiency in the literature through the provision of a series of analyses by international subject experts of the different areas of warfare that the United States is expected to use or encounter in the future.
The book will be comprised of an introduction and eleven chapters, each built around a different theme of the future of US warfare. This includes cyber warfare, asymmetric conflicts, drone warfare, and nuclear strategy, as well as many others, outlined in full below. The book promises to be of significant interest for a wide range of audiences, including US policy makers (especially those working in the fields of foreign affairs and national security), military practitioners, scholars and students of all levels in academic fields such as security studies, international relations, comparative politics, and sociology, and members of international non-governmental organizations and security consulting firms worldwide. The book will adopt an interdisciplinary approach and employ a variety of theoretical and empirical methods, which will help to make the content of the work both highly relevant and informative for its intended diverse readership.
