Armed Forces and the International Diversities

Leena Parmar (Author)
Synopsis This book is an anthology assembling writings of scholars of diverse orientations who have special interest and competence in the area of Armed Forces. The diverse orientations of the armed forces in terms of its substantive contours through these articles have been faithfully presented to the readers. There are thirteen articles by eminent social scientists from all over the world, which is an encyclopedic gift for both teachers and students. These articles have not been labelled as the best, although they represent the best from each country. The new security environment as a result of global transformations after the cold war era represents a requirement in which new thinking and new strategic approaches have to be found to safeguard the integrity and legitimacy of the free world. The articles presented in this book work in this direction and it is an effort to understand the diverse experiences of the armed forces the world over. The contents include two articles on India, focussing on Mass Media and Kargil, political instability and the Indian military. The position of blacks in the US Army, the integration of the Armed Forces into the South African National Defence Force, the New Non-Traditional Roles for the military, NATO in the 21 century, the conflict resolution of Sudan, the positive impact of peacekeeping in Japan, the impact of military participation on economic growth and income inequality, the state, non-state actors and conflict resolution in Sudan, Armed Forces, passive revolution in social conflicts resolution in Brazil and two very interesting articles on women, the women’s security is human security and women’s interests in defence and democracy. Taken as a whole, they form an erudite broad canvas of the subject that would be of maximum benefit to scholars, military scientists, defence analysts, diplomats, policy makers, and the general reader, who is keen to acquaint himself with the finer details of a subject whose importance in national life has yet to be gained.
