Nine contributions from Dorman (defense studies, Joint Services Command and Staff College, UK) and other defense experts discuss the role of military power in fulfilling the ends of policy in the post- Cold War environment. Some of the issues addressed include the impact of the proliferation of conventional weapons technology, "asymmetric warfare" between Western and non-Western countries, and current British defense policy.
