Compiled to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing security environment, this important collection grew out of an innovative Department of Defense (DOD) workshop. The book's purpose is to examine strategic trends, their defense relevance, how they may overlap to produce strategic "shocks"-such as the launch of Sputnik and the fall of the Berlin Wall-and how the United States might prepare for such events to mitigate risks and capitalize on opportunities. From a broad range of backgrounds, distinguished authors work from the premise of the six trend categories identified by DOD: conflict; demographics; economy; environment; culture, identity, and governance; and science and technology. Another group of regional experts considers these six categories in the context of their respective regions: Africa, China, Europe and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Russia and Eurasia, South Asia, and Latin America. Looking insightfully at broad trends, Fighting Chance goes well beyond the obvious dangers they might pose in order to warn of future perils-and to suggest opportunities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Fighting Chance is a premier effort to think about the future in terms that recognize and come to grips with the role of complexity, discontinuity, and surprise in the course of human events as we experience them, not just as theoreticians schematicize them. Here, we find a thorough effort to think about national security in its broadest terms. . . . Fighting Chance illuminates the kind of agenda that our policymaking process must expect to handle."--Leon Fuerth, Research Professor of International Affairs, The George Washington University--Leon Fuerth (08/11/2009)
