Description
Sloan (international relations, Carleton U., Canada) analyzes how select national militaries have engaged with military transformation and assesses the relevance of these activities to modern conflict and the future global security environment. By using the term "military transformation," she means to encompass a range of interrelated issues, including the change from "in place" armies of the Cold War era to the more agile and deployable expeditionary forces of the current era; the growing centrality of stabilization and reconstruction operations, counterinsurgency missions, and special operations forces; and wider understandings of transformation such as homeland defense, maintaining unhindered access to space, and new approaches to defense and deterrence. She provides a detailed look at the steps the United States has been taking in these areas and includes discussion of Australia, Britain, Canada, France, and Germany, as well as NATO as a whole. China and Russia each receive a dedicated chapter. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
