That’s not a joke, but the answer is part of the core question explored in Mike Horowitz‘s book, The Diffusion of Military Power: Why some military innovations spread and influence international politics, while others do not.

CSIS is hosting a panel discussion of the book, with Mike Horowitz, Frank Hoffman, Clark Murdock, and Wick Murray on Monday.  Make the jump for more details and to RSVP.

The CSIS Defense and National Security Group (DNSG), which houses PONI at CSIS, is proud to announce a book launch event that we are hosting for Michael Horowitz,  Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania. Horowitz’s new book, The Diffusion of Military Power, examines how the financial and organizational challenges of adopting new methods of fighting wars can influence the international balance of power. More information about the book, including some strong endorsements from people such as Eliot Cohen and John Nagl, can be found on Horowitz’s website. The details for the CSIS book launch are:
