This book brings together military sociologists from eight countries to discuss and illustrate new directions for military sociology. As the roles and even the meaning of the armed forces are evolving rapidly, the authors present alternate ways of looking at key social issues and assumptions about armed forces and society. The chapters examine the foundations of military sociology and elucidate the potential contributions of interpretative sociology and allied approaches to the study of military affairs. This collection is intended primarily for academic researchers and students of military affairs, in both civilian and military institutions. Researchers will find a wide array of tools and perspectives that can be used in dealing with the challenges that face the armed forces and society. The text offers several pedagogical features such as learning objectives, key terms and concepts, study questions, and other resources that undergraduates, as well as graduate students and their teachers, will find most helpful.
