Written in an easy-to-understand style, the book presents a social–scientific approach. It describes the nuances of technological development in a purely scientific manner and provides a social perspective to their relevance for future warfare and for issues such as disarmament and arms control, as well as their impact on the environment. The book begins with a focus on the research going on in several developed countries in the last decade—some of them for nearly two decades now—and then narrows its focus on India and a few developing countries. It concludes with a few India-specific recommendations, which would help policy-makers and military leadership to methodically incorporate the recent technological developments in the future warfare and defense tactics of the country.
Strategic Technologies for the Military: Breaking New Frontiers, as can be gauged from the title, will be immensely useful for students and academics working in the fields of defense and strategic studies, politics, and international relations.
