AIR WARFARE: THE FOURTH GENERATION by Christopher Campbell (Arco: $16.95). The era chronicled in Campbell's "Air Warfare" is aerial combat today. That's sci-fact upon hi-tech in the sophisticated, somewhat spooky arena of laser-guided bombs, fire-and-forget missiles from airplanes, electro-optically guided missiles from ground pounders, cluster munitions and piloting by computers with microsecond reflexes that "fly" a highly maneuverable but inherently unstable airplane. A valuable primer for those in search of a data base for defense information emerging from Washington, London, Moscow and Peking these days.
