Foreword: In The Politics of Coercion: Toward a Theory of Coercive Airpower for Post?Cold War Conflict, Lieutenant Colonel Ellwood P. ?Skip? Hinman IV confronts an issue of high interest to airmen and policy makers alike: What does coercion theory suggest about the use of airpower in the early twenty-first century? More specifically, Colonel Hinman seeks to determine whether any of the existing theories of coercion can stand alone as a coherent, substantive, and codified approach to airpower employment. Framing his analysis on three key attributes of conflict in the post?Cold War era--limited, non-protracted war; political restraint; and the importance of a better state of peace--Hinman examines the contemporary applicability of the four major theories of coercive airpower: punishment, risk, decapitation, and denial.
