BeschreibungSure to be found controversial by some, compelling by all, this is the only available book-length examination of the way the U.S. Army and Department of Defense have tried to create the capabilities promised by the high-tech Revolution in Military Affairs. Of more immediate concern, it is also the only in-depth account of the effect RMA and transformation concepts had on the American operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Many of the problems in both Iraq and Afghanistan, Adams argues, arose from the DoD's implacable desire to implement RMA-driven transformation concepts--whether they were appropriate or not. The interplay of politics, technology and military reality offers a fascinating narrative.
PortraitTHOMAS K. ADAMS is a national security consultant based in the Washington DC area. He is the author of US Special Operations: The Challenge of Unconventional Warfare (1998) and numerous articles dealing with military and national security subjects. He is a veteran of thirty-four years military service, principally in intelligence and special operations.
Pressestimmen""[T]he Army after Next" is spot on and Tom Adams is something of a prophet....[a] well-documented, well-reasoned, and well-written piece of work by a highly experienced practitioner. This book should be mandatory reading for citizens as well as decision-policy-and opinion makers. At base, "The Army after Next" deals with the issue of security--our security. Too few of us have paid much attention. Pay attention now." - Parameters
