    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    This edited volume reconsiders the importance of the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki from a post-Cold War perspective.

    This book deals with the history and future of the concept of ‘world peace through law’ (WPTL), which advocates replacing the use of international force with the global rule of law.

  • Humanization of Arms Controlby Daniel Rietiker

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Despite clear legal rules and political commitments, no significant progress has been made in nuclear disarmament for two decades. Moreover, not even the use of these weapons has been banned to date. New ideas and strategies are therefore necessary. The author explores an alternative approach to arms control focusing on the human dimension rather... more...

  • Indian Power Projectionby Shashank Joshi

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 47.95

    India is growing into one of Asia’s most important military powers. Its defence budget has more than doubled in the past decade, and it imports more arms than anyone else in the world. But India is still seen as a land power focused on long, disputed and militarised borders with Pakistan and China rather than the global military force it was in the... more...

    Lexington Books 2017; US$ 85.00
