The Use of Force After the Cold War
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe end of the Cold War created a near-euphoria that nations might rely less on military force and that the Doomsday nuclear clock mights up short of midnight. Events soon dashed the higher of these hopes, but the nature of military force and the uses to which it might be put did appear to be changing. Here, eleven scholars address the political, moral, and military factors in the decision to use or avoid military force. Case studies of the Gulf War and Bosnia, the role of women in the armed forces, intelligence agencies, and inter-branch and inter-agency tensions and cooperation inform the various chapters. An introduction by H. W. Brands ties together the themes and perspectives.
