The book emphasizes non-military warfare, warning that soldiers do not have the monopoly of war. It explicitly mentions Osama bin Laden as a threat to USA- the book was written more than two years before September 11 2001. Please note this book includes references to the original paging.The goal of the book was to warn China that only preparing for a conventional fight against the US military might (for Taiwan, natural resources, etc.) is not enough. It proposes tactics for developing countries, in particular China, to compensate for their military inferiority vis-à-vis the United States during a high-tech war.Reducing ones opponent, the book notes, can be accomplished in a number of ways other than direct military confrontation, because alternative methods have the same and even greater destructive force than military warfare, and they have already produced serious threats different from the past and in many directions for national security.LawfareLawfare, or political action through transnational or non-governmental organizations can effect a policy change that would be impossible otherwise.

Because of the international nature of the modern world and activism, it is much easier for nation-states to affect policy in other nation-states through a proxy.Economic warfareOwing to the interconnected nature of global economics, nations can inflict grievous harm on the economies of other nations without taking any offensive action.Network warfareOne of the better-known alternatives in this book is the idea of attacking networks.

Networks are increasingly important in not only data exchange but also transportation, financial institutions, and communication. Attacks that disable networks can easily hamstring large areas of life that are dependent on them for coordination. One example of network warfare would be shutting down a network that supplies power. If there is a significant failure in the power grid caused by the attack, massive power outages could result, crippling industry, defense, medicine, and all other areas of life.TerrorismTerrorism is used by a group to gain satisfaction for certain demands.

Even if these demands are not satisfied, a terrorist attack can have vastly disproportionate effects on national welfare. One only has to look at the economic crisis that followed the terrorist attacks against the United States, or the extensive security measures put in place after those same attacks.

Terrorism erodes a nations sense of security and well being, even if the direct effects of the attacks only concern a minute percentage of the population.Defense against unrestricted warfareThe authors note that an old-fashioned mentality that considers military action the only offensive action is inadequate given the new range of threats.

Instead, the authors advocate forming a composite force in all aspects related to national interest. Moreover, given this type of composite force, it is also necessary to have this type of composite force to become the means which can be utilized for actual operations. This should be a grand warfare method which combines all of the dimensions and methods in the two major areas of military and non-military affairs so as to carry out warfare. This is opposite of the formula for warfare methods brought forth in past wars.
