RID-HECKER(cover)“Thematically rich and masterfully constructed, this book shows how our wired-up world has changed the operational environment. War 2.0 is Clausewitz rebooted for the 21st century.”

Christopher Coker, Professor of International Relations, The London School of Economics, author of Humane Warfare

“High-tech revolutions are rocking the military and the media, toppling hierarchies, and upending traditional players. War 2.0 reveals how the old ways of war and communications are coming apart, and what the chaotic, self-organizing, networked future is likely to be.”

Noah Shachtman, Wired magazine, editor of Danger Room,
