"In the future, the network will be the single most important contributor to combat power."

This is perhaps the most important conclusion of a Report to Congress filed by the U.S. Department of Defense in July 2001. This report marked the arrival of "Network Centered Warfare" (NCW) as the dominant planning perspective of the American military. If the war against Iraq is envisaged as NCW's fist major practical test and laboratory, it will certainly not be the last. This lecture proposes to explore some of the premises that inform the different aspects of NCW, as well as certain ramifications. Attention will be paid to the transformations in the conecption of conflict resulting from a mode of thinking that places the "information network" at its "center."
