The Art of Strategic Agency

Rated 4.50/5 based on 2 reviews
In an age of postmodern irony, the army commander is trapped in a loop of strategic narratives. The endgame in the hyperreal, media-saturated world is pre-determined by the stories of old. This author- a former military researcher at the World’s oldest thinktank- takes a look at this startlingly new frontline in military plotting.

This isn't the new Sun Tzu. But I think it's the only book with a post-modern slant for today's army. This should be put in Sandhurst's library. And it should be kept from anyone in a cave in Torah borah. A nice start. The author should do a review of Iraq...
