This collection of essays offers what the editor considers to be the better examples of relatively new approaches to military studies. The works included in this volume deal with the political, social and psychological aspects of the military (rather than concentrating on tactics, logistics, etc.) dating from the Colonial period to the present. Each essay is introduced by an informative background note to place the piece in historical context.
