Go Planet! A Strategic Visionary Story and Art for the next Military Century!

Jim Channon, a former Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army, is a futurologist and military theorist. As a professional soldier, he commanded five combat units, with two years in Vietnam, and in 1978 created the First Earth Battalion Field Manual for non-lethal warfare. In his work as social architect, philosopher and futurist he remains a key adviser to military think tanks and specialises in 'Natural Security' and 'Global Reconstruction'. He has created designs for a global village, a district, several bioregions and the planet connected with a webocracy, 'imagining the Army's full potential as an instrument for the future'. Jim Channon's history was explored in Jon Ronson's book, The Men Who Stare at Goats (2004).
