About this book

The contributors to this volume seek to explore the multi-dimensional (institutional, cultural, technological, and political) environments of several Asian states to determine the amenability of those host environments for the adoption/adaptation of the Revolution in Military Affairs (RMS).

Reviews

"A formidable collection of authors examine the impact of advanced military information technologies on the leading powers in Asia. Goldman and Mahnken remind us that there is no single revolution in military affairs, but rather very different adjustments by states according to their needs and resources. A substantial contribution to the literature on Asian defense policy, and changes in contemporary military art and science." - Eliot A. Cohen, Director, Strategic Studies Program, The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
