Instructors in military and political sciences present a primary textbook for MSS 251: Airpower and Joint Operations Strategy, a course in the US Air Force Academy's Department of Military and Strategic Studies. After chapters introducing contemporary strategy, they cover airpower strategy and levels of effects; air, space, and cyber effects; defense organizations and the joint operating environment; and contemporary challenges in the application of strategy. Among their topics are the ways of war: constricting a compelling strategy, airpower for strategic effect: classic to contemporary airpower theory, Goldwater-Nichols and the evolution of the joint force, flawed reasoning and bias in decision making, and innovation and organizational politics.
