A BOOK REVIEW WORTH READINGThe Adventures of Chester
has a wide-ranging and informative review
of The Shield of Achilles:War, Peace and the Course of History
by Phillip Bobbitt
. After seeing the selection of topics raised by Mr. Bobbitt and elucidated by Chester
- netwar, market-states, ebay-style command systems, PNM, epochal wars - and the impressive people who are themselves reading Shield of Achilles
, this may be the next " must-read" book alongside Blueprint for Action
on military strategy, society and foreign policy.
I think I will pencil Border's into my weekend schedule.
