9780252037894: Demilitarization in the Contemporary World

Contemporary world history has highlighted militarization in many ways, from the global Cold War and numerous regional conflicts to the general assumption that nationhood implies a significant and growing military. Yet the twentieth century also offers notable examples of large-scale demilitarization, both imposed and voluntary. Demilitarization in the Contemporary World fills a key gap in current historical understanding by examining demilitarization programs in Germany, Japan, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Costa Rica. Contributors investigate factors such as military defeat, border security risks, economic pressures, and the development of strong peace cultures among citizenry. Exemplifying the political difficulties of demilitarization in both its failures and successes, Demilitarization in the Contemporary World provides a possible roadmap for future policies and practices.

Review:

 "This important book captures the deep complexity and contingency of the problem of militarization and demilitarization in the post-World War II environment. The thought-provoking essays provide deep and important insights in a global and comparative framework."--Michael Neiberg, author of The Blood of Free Men: The Liberation of Paris, 1944
