is either a major admirer of Martin van Creveld
, William Lind
and John Robb
or he owes somebody some serious royalties. This article could be Cliffs Notes for The Rise and Decline of the State
. Yet not a word of acknowledgment. For good measure, he also borrows the term " Gap" from Tom Barnett
but mostly he just cribs from the 4GW school.
Uncool. Attribution is important.
