Overview

Fourteen American and Australian educators and practitioners—most associated with the Joint Forces Staff College, others with various branches of the U.S. or Australian national security communities—contribute six chapters on information operations (IO)—the use of modern technology to deliver critical information and influential content in an effort to shape perceptions, manage opinions, and control behavior in national security affairs. Originally conceived as a textbook for Joint Forces Staff College students, the text traces the history of IO from a doctrinal standpoint and with regard to organizational changes and educational efforts, and covers the capabilities and related activities of information warfare.
