Description

The Winter 2018 issue of Parameters from the Army War College features a Special Commentary, “Civil-Military Relations and Today’s Policy Environment” by Thomas Garner. Garner. General Garner suggests US civil-military relations may have come to a crossroads where the rift between American citizens and their military has grown too great to be ignored any longer.

This is a subject of considerable consequence in today’s age of instant news and unending forms of media that should be of importance not only for America’s military establishment, Congressional and Federal officials, but the public-at-large.

The Winter Quarterly draws upon the expertise and knowledge of authors across multiple disciplines within the military community whose insights and observations open a window into complex issues of value to military professionals who live in this world, but will also give much needed exposure of these complex matters to Americans seeking a better understanding of the world in which we live in today.

This issue also features articles on other topical matters such as:

  • Social media Warriors: Leveraging a New Battlespace
  • Multidemensionality: Rethinking Power Projection for the 21st Century
  • High-Energy Laser Weapons: Overpromising Readiness
  • Innovation Tradecrafts: Sustaining Technological Advantage in the Future Army
  • Profession at the Crossroads
  • Book Reviews that feature data wars, contemporary conflicts, and more
