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."
