In this resource for general readers Bourque (US Army General Staff College) explains how operations after the collapse of the Soviet Union shifted from the European and Asian theaters to the Middle East in operations Just Cause, Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and in a number of interventions in insurgencies. He details changes in mission after 9/11 and the resulting changes in the organization and strategy of the Army and then concentrates on recruitment, training, the composition of the new soldiers (including the increasing presence of women), career soldiers, the new emphasis on technology, the process of going to war as a volunteer, and the characteristics of the post-Cold War veteran. Bourque includes a helpful timeline and a comprehensive bibliography. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
