  • The End of Warby John Horgan

    McSweeney's 2012; US$ 9.99

    War is a fact of human nature. As long as we exist, it exists. That's how the argument goes. But longtime Scientific American writer John Horgan disagrees.

War is not preordained, and furthermore, it... more...

    Since its emergence in 1998, the concept of Network Centric Warfare (NCW) has become a central driver behind America?s military ?transformation? and seems to offer the possibility of true integration between multinational military formations.
