NEWPORT, R.I. - Naval War College (NWC) professors Kathleen Walsh, of the National Security Decision Making department, and Peter Dombrowski, of Strategic Research, each wrote a chapter in a recently published book, “The Modern Defense Industry: Political, Economic, and Technological Issues.”
The book discusses defense as a business, examining controversy, problems and concepts in the modern era. The book was written in two volumes and explores the industry on a global scale.
Chapter seven, by Walsh, is titled “The Role, Promise and Challenges of Dual-Use Technologies in National Defense,” and centers around technology that can be used in more than one way.
Chapter eight, by Dombrowski and co-authored by another, non-NWC author, is titled “The Revolution in Military Affairs, Transformation, and the U.S. Defense Industry,” which focuses on the changes in the military under the second Bush administration.
