Mr. Barnett gave a PowerPoint presentation derived from his book The Pentagon’s New Map, a study on how globalization affects U.S. national security. He outlined an operational strategy for the U.S. and it’s military in the post-September 11th world. The briefing was given at the Highlands Forum on December 6, 2004 in Alexandria, Virginia. Following the presentation Mr. Barnett was in the C-SPAN studio to take viewer telephone calls and answer questions about his presentation.
Mr. Barnett is the author of The Pentagon’s New Map: War and Peace in the Twenty-First Century, published by Putnam Publishing Group. A briefing that Mr. Barnett has delivered hundreds of times in the past few years to government officials, military officers, business leaders and opinion makers inspired the book. In the book he described the changing natures of war, security, and foreign policy in the post-Cold War era. He explained a theory of the effects of globalization that combines security, economic, political, and cultural factors to forecast future military needs. He also used autobiographical elements to explain the behind the scenes workings of the Pentagon and how his PowerPoint presentation has been used.
Thomas P.M. Barnett is a Senior Strategic Researcher at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, and a former strategist in the Pentagon’s Office of Force Transformation.
