Soft Power on Hard Problems : Strategic Influence in Irregular Warfare Paperback / softback
Edited by Ajit Maan, Amar Cheema
The authors of this book are uniquely qualified to analyze the contemporary security landscape and promote necessary and pressing change.
Each is a thought leader in his or her field. Four out of six authors are seasoned military professionals who share the view that the over-reliance on kinetic approaches over influence operations account for some of the failures of nations against extremists.
Combined with civilian academic leadership this book is a practice in military civics.
This collection of international perspectives, taken together, challenge commonly held assumptions and outmoded paradigms of engagement. In tribute to Co-Editor Amar Cheema, Brigadier General (R) We wish to dedicate this collaborative effort arguing for a more profitable approach to ending and pre-empting conflict as a fitting, living tribute to our Dear Friend, Colleague and Co-Editor, Brig.
Amar Cheema, the consummate Soldier, Scholar and Gentleman.
Brig. Cheema embodied the concept of "no one appreciates peace and stability as much as a Soldier".
Editing and Co-authoring our book focused on using all elements of National Power to achieve and sustain stability is an apt legacy for our Dear Friend.
