Introduction: When asked why he had not submitted more work for publication, Henry Roth, the author of the critically acclaimed 1934 novel, Call It Sleep, responded, ?If I had been in a more stable society, one that hadn?t changed so abruptly (due to upheavals of the Great Depression and World War II), I could have gotten-oh, like Dickens. He could count on his society, and his attitude toward that society, being the same from his first novel to the last. I didn?t feel I could do that.? Like Roth, national security decision makers face an uncertain world where the accelerated growth of knowledge has changed the character of technological advance and destabilized long-standing relations within and among the military services. But unlike Roth, national security decision makers do not have the luxury of withdrawal; they must try to make reasonable judgments about acquisition of military technology, associated concepts of operations, and the organization of combat forces.
