Biografie (woord)

Everett Carl Dolman served as a strategic intelligence analyst for the US Government before receiving his doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania. He has published three books and dozens of articles and book chapters on international security, geopolitics, air and space power, political theory, and civil–military relations. He is currently professor of comparative military studies at the US Air Force’s School of Advanced Air and Space Studies (SAASS), Air University.


"A clearly written and well–paced investigation into the character and nature of war, and the role of science and scientists in determining both. There are fascinating insights into 3D guns, non–lethal weapons and the author’s speciality, space–based systems. Bridging the worlds of scholarship and military practice, Dolman is uniquely qualified to comment on the science/war nexus and how all this impacts on the ′real world′."
Christopher Coker, London School of Economics

"Can Science End War? illustrates the changing nature of technology and human conflict with vivid analysis of war fought from ancient history to today, and a terrifying view of how modern science could influence future outbreaks of violence. Current events such as the proliferation of nuclear weapons, access to space, and new operations in the cyber environment demand that we understand and confront the questions Dolman puts before us. Our political, military, and scientific communities need to consider the challenges he poses if we are to accurately navigate the path to peace in this rapidly changing world; for, after all, ignorance is the reason all wars are lost."
General Charles A. Horner, former USAF Four–Star General and Commander in Chief of the North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Space Command

"At a time when many seem determined to seek simple technological solutions to the complex political and human problem of future armed conflict, Dolman’s perspective may help to correct unwise thinking about defence and international security."
