    After studying the Toffler’s earlier books, the US military brings the Tofflers in for additional consulting concerning how the changes in society described in their earlier tomes, based on ‘The Third Wave”, will impact the world of war. The Tofflers use this book to describe the kinds of predictions and descriptions they provided to the military. There is a lot of focus on how technology is changing war, and how organization is changing in war and in society in general. Having read all of the Toffler’s other books, I found some interesting extensions, but this is mostly a rehash of their earlier work, albeit with a slant toward how war is impacted by the introduction of the information wave. The Tofflers also talk about what they call “anti-war”, or the use of new technology and organization to combat war. While this is a big part of the book’s title, it’s a small part of the book’s content. They don’t have much to say here, and I felt their analogies for anti-war weren’t as baked as most of their other analogies. If you like Toffler books, you’ll like this one. It felt much like their earlier books like “Powershift” and less like their later books, which I found not as readable. They continue to telegraph upcoming parts of the book, like baiting that a topic will come up in a future chapter a few times. And this continues their use of very short chapters. For me, this makes the book quite readable.

    Neodvažuji se dost dobře hodnotit odbornou literaturu (ale vzhledem k tomu, že to bylo podmínkou k zápočtu, tak jsem stejně musel:). Důvod je asi nasnadě - autor je na škále toho, jak tématu rozumí, pochopitelně obyčejně někde jinde než čtenář, tudíž pokud nehlásá vyloženě bludy, dost těžko se dá měřit, jak moc pravdu vlastně má. Nicméně Válka a antiválka Tofflerových je asi trochu něco jiného. Jakožto futurologické dílo zde není nic jako "tak to je", jen spousta toho "tak by to mohlo nejspíš být". A vzhledem k tomu, že autoři patří k uznávané špičce svého oboru, není se bát nějaké nevěrohodnosti. Nicméně zase krátce.Ať už je válka a mír předmětem vašeho studia nebo jen zájmu, v téhle publikaci si své dozajista najdete - prognózy o vývoji válečnictví, které znějí pohádkově dobře (kupříkladu neletální zbraně) a zároveň děsivě (schopnost cracknout kardiostimulátor v okruhu šedesáti metrů a zabít jím člověka), dávají spoustu podnětů pro zamyšlení a je víceméně jedno, jestli se v situaci orientujete nebo ne, vše je psáno poměrně laicko-friendly.S tím možná ale zároveň souvisí jediné, co bych knize vytkl - tedy občasnou potřebu autorů všechno zbytečně zdlouhavě rozmazávat a opakovat dokola, což se z praktických důvodů zrovna nehodí..

    About the age of the information and the modern ways of structuring the society. The main purpose is to outline how the successful war as a wealth generating power in the 21st century should look like according to the authors' theory of waves.

    A great general read if you are interested in pontificating about why, how, and who goes to war. This is not a history book as much as a philosophy book, in my opinion. and its very accessible... for those who didn't get to read Clauswitz's 'On War' in a college class, especially.

    rather disappointing so far - having a hard time finishingI quit!! really a rehash of modern warfare and its implications - not really very informative or interestingnever finished - not worth the effort - out of date and simply parises smart technology etc

    Without knowing it, there is a lot of game theory in this book. I've gone back and re-read it a few times. Toffler is consistent in marking the plow, the assembly line, and the computer as the 3 waves of change. The latest book Revolutionary Wealth is the icing on the cake.

    Tofflers always deliver a good read. A little different than their usual observations but nonetheless interesting at it's lowest points.

    Alvin and Heidi Toffler certainly offer a tremendous amount of info in this book. It's hard reading.

    A true visionary look at cyber warfare (before such a thing really existed) and the future of conflict.
