The New Rules of War: Discussion & Book Signing with
Sean McFate

This event was previously scheduled for January 29 but was postponed due to weather. It is now officially rescheduled for March 12. If you were previously signed up please re-register with the link on this page and we'll see you soon!

What is the future of war? Who and how will people fight? What factors will lead to warfare? How can we survive? If Americans are drawn into major armed conflict, can we win? In his upcoming book, "The New Rules of War: Victory in the Age of Durable Disorder," Sean McFate carefully constructs ten rules for the future of military engagement, explaining how to fight and win in an age of entropy and a global system very different from the past: one where corporations, mercenaries, and rogue states have more power and ‘nation states’ have less. McFate’s new rules distill the essence of war, describing what it is in the real world, not what we believe or wish it to be.

Join YPFP and Sean McFate on Tuesday, March 12th at 7PM at the University of California, Washington Center for a discussion of these new rules of war and a book sale & signing event!
