    Mary Kaldor's New and Old Wars has fundamentally changed the way both scholars and policy-makers understand contemporary war and conflict.

    In 1942, Lieutenant-Commander Ian Fleming was personal assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence - the dynamic figure behind James Bond's fictional chief, 'M'.

  • Fighting Identityby Michael Vlahos

    ABC-CLIO 2008; US$ 105.00

    This work highlights a national ethos infused by a sacred narrative of divine mission.

  • Gewaltspiralenby Gertrud Brücher

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2011; US$ 44.11

    Die tödliche Eskalation von Konflikten ist als Grund für und gegen Interventionen ein Problem ersten Ranges. Aber worum handelt es sich hier eigentlich? Aktuelle Debatten suchen erfolglos nach einer Erklärung für Eigendynamiken, die weder Adressaten noch schuldige Akteure kennen. Die Hilflosigkeit wird überspielt, indem Schuldige „konstruiert“ werden.... more...

    Columbia University Press 2012; US$ 23.99

    Master Sun’s The Art of War , the best-known ancient text on adversarial strategy, is by no means China’s only treatise on military affairs.
