This book gives the reader a clear international view of interdisciplinary and intradisciplinary approaches to military and conflict-resolution studies. It shows how inter- and intra-disciplinary approaches have become the rule for research in the social sciences today and why this tendency applies to military and conflict-resolution studies, too, not only via the use of sociology, but to the social sciences in general, and as an approach that looks at trends more than at history, these new aspects and tendencies of the social sciences in studying the military universe.
Containing essays by some of the most highly regarded scholars on the subject, this is essential reading for all students of civil-military relations, conflict resolution and military studies in general.
Since the end of the Cold War, military operations other than war, crisis-response operations, the fight against terrorism, and hi-tech warfare have posed for the militaries of all countries a new set of human and social challenges and problems of an intensity never before seen in peacetime. Sociology, social psychology, anthropology and the science of conflict are grappling with these issues, common to the armed forces of all countries, with a new fervor. This new book offers an update on the state-of-the-art on this theme and as an indicator of the new study trends in the field.
