Jon Lindsay, associate professor in the School of Cybersecurity and Privacy and the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, published Information Technology and Military Power in 2020. In the book, Lindsay discusses how militaries adapt their strategies to meet emerging technologies and how now, the effectiveness with which militaries use information technologies shapes their overall performance.

A roundtable of reviewers analyzed Lindsay’s book, its arguments, and the implications of his research for the future of warfare.

“Lindsay’s deeper contribution, something the reviewers in this roundtable agree about, lies in offering an expansive framework for charting how organizations adapt and reform their information systems as new technologies emerge,” said Taylor Grossman, chair of the roundtable and senior research analyst and project manager in the Cyber Policy Initiative at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “He does this by focusing on the iterative, relational nature of information collection and analysis — the points of interaction between humans and technology.”
