The Palgrave International Handbook of Gender and the Military' provides a comprehensive overview of the multiple ways in which gender and militaries connect. International and multi-disciplinary in scope, this edited volume provides authoritative accounts of the many intersections through which militaries issues and military forces are shaped by gender. The chapters provide detailed accounts of key issues, informed by examples from original research in a wealth of different national contexts. This 'Handbook' includes coverage of conceptual approaches to the study of gender and militaries, gender and the organisation of state military forces, gender as it pertains to military forces in action, transitions and transgressions within militaries, gender and non-state military forces, and gender in representations of military personnel and practices. With contributions from a range of both established and early career scholars, 'The Palgrave International Handbook of Gender and the Military' is an essential guide to current debates on gender and contemporary military issues.

The art of creating power : Freedman on strategy
Benedict Wilkinson, James Gow (editors)
London : Hurst & Company, 2017
The Art of Creating Power explores the intellectual thought and wider impact on military affairs, politics and the universities of Professor Sir Lawrence Freedman, one of the world's leading authorities on strategy, conflict and international politics. In this volume, senior scholars of international relations and military history trace the long trajectory of Freedman's career, examining his scholarly contribution to a whole host of areas from nuclear strategy to US foreign policy via terrorism, the Falklands and Iraq. Individually, these essays provide fascinating and innovative insights into strategy, contemporary defence and foreign policy, and conflict. Taken together, however, they are greater than the sum of their parts as they both reflect and explore the theoretical approach adopted and taught by Freedman one that has made him one of the great intellectual figures in the canon of international politics, strategy and war. Throughout his professional life, Freedman explored many of the uncertainties that plague our highly unstable world. But as conflicts continue to erupt across the globe, it seems we may be entering an even more precarious and uncertain era. There could hardly be a better time than today to gain a deeper understanding of Freedman's strategic insights. --

Without a country : the untold story of America's deported veterans
Garcia, J. Malcolm, 1957- author
New York, NY : Hot Books, [2017]
Time served -- Now I'm not a hero -- Move to survive -- Burial rites -- After Ashley -- Coming home I -- Coming home II -- Epilogue.

"There is perhaps no starker example of the domestic costs and blindspots of America's modern military exploits than the continued practice of deporting men and women who have served in our armed forces. In this book, J. Malcolm Garcia reports from across the country and abroad, profiling veterans who have been deported, as well as the families and friends they have left behind. Without a Country analyzes the political and cultural climate that has led America here and takes a hard look at the toll deportation has taken on veterans and their communities."--Provided by publisher.

Encyclopedia of cyber warfare
Paul J. Springer, editor
Santa Barbara, California : ABC-CLIO, an Imprint of ABC-CLIO, LLC, [2017]
"This current volume seeks to provide some clarity regarding the history and current capabilities of the cyber domain. Its authors have largely, though not exclusively, focused upon the Western experience, particularly the United States. In part, this is due to the availability of open source, unclassified data. Not only are the sources more readily available, but they tend to be more applicable to the target audience for this work. The authors come from a wide variety of backgrounds, with a substantial number of them serving in the military or other governmental institutions. As such, it needs to be stated that the ideas and arguments presented in this volume are the opinions of the individual authors, based upon their expertise, and do not represent the position of any government, military entity, or institution."--Provided by publisher.

NATO and the North Atlantic : Revitalising Collective Defence
edited by John Andreas Olsen
Milton Park, Abingdon : Routledge Journals, 2017
Foreword / Philip M. Breedlove -- Introduction : The Quest for Maritime Supremacy / John Andreas Olsen -- The Significance of the North Atlantic and the Norwegian Contributuion / Rolf Tamnes -- The UK and the North Atlantic After Brexit / Malcolm Chalmers -- The Centrality of the North Atlantic to NATO and US Strategic Interests / John J. Hamre and Heather A. Conley -- Norway and the North Atlantic : Defence of the Northern Flank / Svein Efjestad --The UK and the North Atlantic : A British Military Perspective / Peter Hudson and Peter Roberts -- The United States, the North Atlantic and Maritime Hybrid Warfare / James Stavridis -- Conclusions and Recommendations / John Andreas Olsen.

"NATO will need to respond effectively to Russia's return to the North Atlantic. Moscow's increased military activity over the past few years gives reason for concern. The priority Russia has placed on military reform and power projection in a time of economic austerity; the scale and scope of Russia's programmed and 'snap' military exercises in the Arctic Ocean, Barents Sea and Baltic Sea; and the revamping of the Northern Fleet, including the establishment of a new Arctic Command, add urgency to those concerns. Beyond this, Vladimir Putin seeks to secure Russian access to warm-water ports in the Black Sea and the Mediterranean that could provide logistic support for naval forces deployed to the Atlantic. Stronger and more capable armed forces are preconditions for Russia to re-emerge as a regional great power with global reach, and Russia is steadily shaping its navy to support these aims. Russia has not only engaged in a major upgrade of its sea-based deterrent forces and is strengthening its sea-based antiballistic missile systems, but is also investing in strategic-level anti-surface warfare capability. Although the Russian Federation Navy is not on a par with the former Soviet Navy, it is developing high-end strategic capabilities that could potentially disrupt sea operations and project force into the Atlantic Ocean, as well as deny Allied maritime operations in the strategic waters between Greenland, Iceland, the UK and Norway. Russia has made it a strategic priority to re-establish an offensively oriented navy for operations in the North Atlantic. Putin's offensive stance is very popular with the Russian population; to many he represents the counterweight to the United States and its allies in Europe. Russia is committed to revitalising and updating the bastion concept and this will remain the defining factor for NATO defence planning in the northern region in the foreseeable future. The Kremlin's long-range power projection strategy presents a major challenge to all NATO members and partners. This 'second coming' in the North Atlantic is the new strategic reality for European security: in broader terms, the 'new normal'."--Publisher's website.

Origins of the North Korean garrison state : the People's Army and the Korean War
Kim, Youngjun, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Introduction: the Korean People's Army's invasion of the South -- Three core groups of the Korean People's Army -- The Korean factor: Kim Il Sung's vision for the KPA -- The Soviet Union factor 1: the Soviet Union in North Korean society -- The Soviet Union factor 2: the formation of the KPA and initiator Kim Il Sung -- The Chinese factor -- The leadership of the Korean People's Army: the party-military relations and generalship of the Korean People's Army -- The Korean People's Army's performance and the legacy of the war: the rise and fall of the Korean People's Army and the making of the garrison state.

"This book investigates the origins of the North Korean garrison state by examining the development of the Korean People's Army and the legacies of the Korean War in political, military, social and cultural contexts. Despite its significance, there are very few books on the Korean People's Army with North Korean primary sources being difficult to access. This book, however, draws on North Korean documents and North Korean veterans' testimonies, and demonstrates how the Korean People's Army and the Korean War shaped North Korea into a closed, militarized and xenophobic garrison state and made North Korea seek Juche (Self Reliance) ideology and weapons of mass destruction. This book maintains that the youth and lower classes in North Korea considered the Korean People's Army as a positive opportunity for upward social mobility. As a result, the North Korean regime secured its legitimacy by establishing a new class of social elites wherein they offered career advancements for persons who had little standing and few opportunities under the preceding Japanese dominated regime. These new elites from poor working and peasant families became the core supporters of the North Korean regime today. In addition, this book argues that, in the aftermath of the Korean War, a culture of victimization was established among North Koreans which allowed Kim Il Sung to use this culture of fear to build and maintain the garrison state. Thus, this work illustrates how the North Korean regime has garnered popular support for the continuation of a militarized state, despite the great hardships the people are suffering. This book will be of much interest to students of North Korea, the Korean War, Asian politics, Cold War Studies, military and strategic studies, and international history."--Provided by publisher.

The military-entertainment complex
Lenoir, Timothy, 1948- author
Cambridge, Massachusetts ; Harvard University Press, 2018
Induction : the military-entertainment complex and the contemporary war imaginary -- From Battlezone to America's Army : the Defense Department and the game industry -- Creating repeat consumers : epic realism and the birth of the wargame franchise -- Coming to a screen near you : the RMA and affective entertainment -- Press X to hack : cyberwar and videogames -- Discharge : counter-wargaming in Spec Ops: the Line.

"With the rise of drones and computer-controlled weapons of war, comparisons between war and video games have multiplied. The authors trace how the realities of war are represented in popular entertainment. In the early days of the video game industry personnel and expertise flowed from contractors building military simulations to game companies; in a middle period the military drew significantly on the booming game industry to train troops; now in our cultural present media corporations and the military draw upon one another cyclically to predict the future of warfare. The book argues that commercial video wargame franchises commodified and marketed the weapons, tactics, and threat scenarios of the Pentagon's War on Terror. Many of the best-selling video games (and television and films) of the last five years depict small special forces units that can deploy at a moment's notice anywhere in the world against non-traditional enemies. This intermediation of media forms within the military-entertainment complex has shaped the popular imaginary of war in the post 9/11 era and has naturalized the Pentagon's vision of a new American way of warfare."--

Japan's search for strategic security partnerships
edited by Gauri Khandekar and Bart Gaens
Milton Park, Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2018
Japan's evolving regional security policy: the quest for strategic partnerships / Bart Gaens -- Japan's relations with China / Shogo Suzuki -- The US pivot to the Asia-Pacific region and Japan's responses / Yoneyuki Sugita -- India and Japan: the new strategic dimension / Harinder Sekhon -- Australia-Japan security relations: bridging the China gap or a bridge too far? / Michael Heazle -- Japan's new activism in ASEAN: China's challenge and the search for a new regional order in East Asia / Takeshi Yuzawa -- Parameters of the strategic alliance between South Korea and Japan / Seon-Hyon Lee -- The Europe-Japan strategic partnership: values, promises and defence / Gauri Khandekar.

"As tensions between China and Japan increase, including over the disputed islands in the East China Sea, Japan has adopted under Prime Minister Abe a new security posture. This involves, internally, adapting Japan's constitutional position on defence and, externally, building stronger international relationships in the Asia-Pacific region and more widely. This book presents a comprehensive analysis of these developments. It shows how trust and co-operation with the United States, the only partner with which Japan has a formal alliance, is being rebuilt, discusses how other relationships, both on security and on wider issues, are being formed, in the region and with European countries and the EU, with the relationships with India and Australia being of particular importance, and concludes by assessing the likely impact on the region of Japan's changing posture and new relationships"--

Contemporary just war : theory and practice
Meisels, Tamar, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2018
Just war theory -- Comrades in arms -- the equal innocence of soldiers -- In defense of the defenseless -- the morality of the laws of war -- Fighting for independence -- what can just war theory -- Just war theory in practice -- Proportionality and risk -- Economic warfare -- the case of Gaza -- Preemptive strikes -- Israel and Iran -- Assassination: targeting nuclear scientists -- Conclusions.

"This book offers a renewed defense of traditional just war theory and considers its application to certain highly controversial contemporary cases, particularly in the Middle East. The first part of the book addresses and responds to the central theoretical criticisms levelled at traditional just war theory. It offers a detailed defense of civilian immunity, the moral equality of soldiers and the related dichotomy between jus ad bellum and jus in bello, and argues that these principles taken together amount to a morally coherent ethics of war. In this sense this project is traditional (or 'orthodox'). In another sense, however, it is highly relevant to the modern world. While the first part of the book defends the just war tradition against its revisionist critics, the second part applies it to an array of timely issues: civil war, economic warfare, excessive harm to civilians, pre-emptive military strikes, and state-sponsored assassination, which require applying just war theory in practice. This book sets out to reaffirm the basic tenets of the traditional ethics of war and to lend them further moral support, subsequently applying them to a variety of practical issues. This book will be of great interest to students of just war theory, ethics, security studies, war and conflict studies, and IR in general."--Provided by publisher.

The Routledge history of global war and society
edited by Matthew S. Muehlbauer and David J. Ulbrich
New York, NY : Routledge, 2018
"The Routledge History of Global War and Society offers a sweeping introduction to the most significant research on the causes, experiences, and impacts of war throughout history. This collection of twenty-seven essays by leading historians demonstrates how war and society studies have dramatically expanded the chronological, geographic, and thematic breadth of the field of military history. Each chapter addresses the ways in which recent scholarship has integrated cultural, ethical, environmental, medical, and ideological factors to explain both conventional conflicts and genocide, terrorism, and other forms of mass violence. The broad scope of the collection make it the perfect primer for scholars and students seeking to understand the complex interactions of warfare and those affecting and affected by conflict."--Provided by publisher.

The self-defense forces and postwar politics in Japan / Sado Akihiro ; translated by Noda Makito = 戦後政治と自衛隊 / 著者佐道明広 ; 訳者野田牧人
佐道明広, 1958- author
Tokyo : Japan Publishing Industry Foundation for Culture, 2017
Prologue : military of a nation that renounces war -- Beginning of the rearmament of Japan. Does establishment of the National Police Reserve constitute the rearmament of Japan? -- From National Safety Forces to Japan Self-Defense Forces -- The birth and growth of the JSDF. The defense agency and the JSDF -- The build up of defense capabilities and a series of defense build-up plans -- The Nakasone Plan and the argument for autonomous national defense -- Formulation of the National Defense Program guidelines -- During the second Cold War. Formulation of the guidelines for Japan-U.S. defense cooperation -- What comprehensive security is -- Toward a stronger U.S.-Japan alliance -- The JSDF and the end of the Cold War. Lessons from the Gulf War -- Multilateral security cooperation vs. the U.S.-Japan alliance -- In the midst of redefinition of the U.S.-Japan security arrangements -- New threats and the new NDPG -- The JSDF at a turning point -- The transformation of Japan's Security Policy and the JSDF.

"In 1947, Japan eternally renounced war and the possession of armed forces with its constitution. How, then, did the Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) survive, moreover, evolve over the ensuing 70 years into the prominent presence it is today? Sado Akihiro reviews the JSDF's history chiefly from the viewpoint of restrictions imposed on it by civil officials of the national bureaucracy, based on lessons gleaned from the arbitrary conduct of the military in pre-World War II days. He also explores the financial constraints placed on the JSDF in the form of a percentage of the GNP. This book traces the inside story of U.S.-Japan relations and Japan's defense policy. It attempts to shine a light on the true state of the JSDF in the midst of new challenges that put it at a crossroads, including post-9/11 international terrorism, North Korean nuclear development, and China's increased military presence in Asia"--Back cover.
