Overview

Air Power Confronts an Unstable World is a series of essays that examine the critical role of air power in international security, focussing on how it can influence both combat and humanitarian operations. This is the first book to look systematically at air power issues from strategy through targeting and the effects of air operations to air power force projection. It has a strong analytical approach and its provocative arguments and insights are all thoroughly rooted in history and experience, from the birth of air power up to the Bosnian air campaign of 1995. It is totally contemporary, the essays having all been completed since late summer 1996. The contributors are among the most distinguished authorities on air power in the English-speaking world and include both academics and senior serving and retired officers from the USA, Great Britain and Australia. This is the first book to tap the experience of such a distinguished group of authors writing in a post-Gulf War, post-Cold War environment.
