SMARTbooks: Reference Essentials for the Instruments of National Power (D-I-M-E: Diplomatic, Informational, Military, Economic)! Recognized as a “whole of government” doctrinal reference standard by military, national security and government professionals around the world, SMARTbooks comprise a comprehensive professional library designed with all levels of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Civilians in mind.
With 18 separate books in our SMARTbook military reference series currently in circulation (and additional new titles in development), we have authored and published more than 40 reference books over the past 22 years. The Lightning Press is the only publisher currently in the military professional reading category that exclusively and directly produces doctrinally-based, institutionally- and organizationally-recognized reference books for the military and federal agencies. Our reference series of books are carried at virtually every Army and Air Force base around the world and have spanned the globe with more than a half-million copies sold.
Our new “National Power” series is a nested collection of supporting and related titles, but with a different focus and “Whole of Government” domain scope (D-I-M-E: Diplomatic, Informational, Military, Economic). Authored by established subject matter experts and industry thought leaders, National Power SMARTbooks are in-depth, single-topic, multi-volume specialty books across multiple reference categories, coupled with the same unique SMARTbook series approach to reference/technical writing and informational art.
