Over the last twenty years, the ends, ways and means of providing for national security have changed dramatically as the result of a combination of changes in the strategic landscape and technology. We are in an era of “unrestricted warfare” declared by China in 1999 in which we are in competition, conflict and combat 24/7/365 around the globe, in space and cyber space. This presentation will examine how and why this has happened as it has and the implications, now and in the future.

Dr. Grant Hammond (PhD SAIS, Johns Hopkins University) recently retired from the USAF Center for Strategy and Technology after 29 years of federal service and as President of ALWAC. He is the author of 3 books (Countertrade Offset and Barter in International Political Economy; Plowshares into Swords: Arms Races in International Politics; The Mind of War: John Boyd and American Security), editor of a fourth (John Boyd’s Discourse on Winning and Losing) and has two more in progress. One is on this topic and the other on Crisis Decision Making in the Nixon Administration in October 1973

Dr. Hammond, Past President of ALWAC, is stepping in to replace a speaker who, owing to a family emergency, is unable to visit in October.
