If the central defence management question during the Cold War was, "how much is enough?" the most pressing question today is "how can we do more with what we have?" With only a few exceptions, soldiers and defence managers in every state are asked to provide sophisticated military capabilities with less money, resources, and people. This collection of essays by internationally reknowned authors attempts to answer some aspects of this fundamental question.
