About

Overview

The Encyclopedia of Military Science provides a comprehensive, ready-reference on the organization, traditions, training, purpose and functions of today's military. Entries include coverage of the duties, responsibilities and authority of military personnel and an understanding of strategies and tactics of the modern military and how they interface with political, social, legal, economic and technological factors. A large component is devoted to issues of leadership, group dynamics, motivation, problem-solving and decision-making in the military context. Finally, the work also covers recent American military history since the end of the Cold War with a special emphasis on peacekeeping and peacemaking operations, the First Persian Gulf War, the events surrounding 9/11, and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and how the military has been changing in relation to these events.
