Cross-Domain Deterrence, from Practice to Theory

(p.1) 1 Introduction
Cross-Domain Deterrence

Jon R. Lindsay

Erik Gartzke

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter provides historical context on the development of cross-domain deterrence as a practical problem in national security affairs, in particular the emergence of space and cyber threats to United States military power. It then steps back to consider whether and how the concept of cross-domain deterrence might be of more general interest in international relations theory. Each of the chapters in this book, summarized herein, probe the analytical utility of cross-domain deterrence by examining how differences across, and combinations of, different military and nonmilitary instruments affect choices and outcomes in coercive policy. The authors find that the concept of cross-domain deterrence does indeed offer novel theoretical insight, even as political and technological complexity may limit its application in practice.

Keywords:   deterrence, cyberspace, space, strategy, cross-domain deterrence, complexity, strategy, military technology
