This book uses the 21st Century Foundations series format to re-introduce to the military community the writings of General Thomas S. Power, the third Commander-in-Chief of the Strategic Air Command (SAC). His unappreciated works contain many insights into military topics such as technology and the arms race, the nature of deterrence, and the military utility of space. Unifying all of these writings was Power's quest to maintain nuclear superiority over the Soviet Union. Although Power is considered a quintessential Cold Warrior, his ideas are timely considering today's challenges of re-energizing the morale and technology of U.S. strategic forces in the wake of foreign advances, discerning what deterrence means in the "Second Nuclear Age," and planning the future of space and cyber power.

"For the modern strategist, including those looking at newer strategic challenges such as cyber security, 21st Century Power: Strategic Superiority for the Modern Era provides several points to consider drawn from complex problems of the past. How to conceive the struggle for a domain, the inclusion and balance of offense and defense, unity of control/commonality of purpose, and the importance of civic engagement in relating strategic messages to a larger population are areas which are informed by the experiences of General Power." --Indian Strategic Studies


"With major leaders such as Trump, Putin and Xi flexing their country's muscles on a seemingly daily basis, the current geo-strategic picture is confusing, to put it mildly. This well chosen collection of essays, provides a clearer view from the standpoint of the United States…. We live in very interesting times. This fine and timely book provides some practical ideas as to how we might survive them." --Workboat World
