Abstract

The aim of the book is to provide a critical appraisal of the concepts of Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA) and Defense Transformation. Both terms claim that the “way of war” has changed as a result of breakthroughs in Information and Communication Technologies (ITC). On the contrary, the book suggests that the impact of ITC should be measured on the Armed Forces’ technological, doctrinal, and organizational apparatus. Taking as a case-study the US during the 1990s and early 2000s, the model that better explains the changes in the Armed Forces is neither the RMA nor the substantial continuity one, but the so-called “organizational learning” model.
