Overview

"Wayne Michael Hall warns in the opening pages of this timely book that enemies of America who have no hope of competing with conventional U.S. military forces will instead seize upon the strategies, tactics, and tools of asymmetric warfare to win future conflicts. A retired brigadier general in the U.S. Army with thirty years of experience in intelligence, Hall has written this book primarily for the military community and civilians interested in, or responsible for, homeland security. He explains the notion of knowledge warfare as our adversaries' principal asymmetric strategy, and information operations as their tactic du jour. He then offers a wealth of ideas on how to deal aggressively with these threats in the twenty-first century." "Along with knowledge war and information operations, his book discusses deception, information superiority, and knowledge management and recommends that the country prepare for knowledge war by merging its brainpower and technology in Knowledge Advantage Centers, developing a joint information operations proving ground where leaders train their staffs in a cyberworld environment, and creating an internet replicator to prepare for conflict in cyberspace." This book is published in cooperation with the Association of the United States Army.
