This research collection provides a comprehensive study of important strategic, cultural, ethical and philosophical aspects of modern warfare. It offers a refreshing analysis of key issues in modern warfare, not only in terms of the conduct of war and the wider complexities and ramifications of modern conflict, but also concepts of war, the crucial shifts in the structure of warfare, and the morality and legality of the use of force in a post-9/11 age. The collection focuses on strategies of war, conduct and control, before progressing to studies of the evolving nature of warfare, its privatization, new electronic methods and the financing of war. The reality and impact of warfare is analyzed through notions of legality, ethics and morality while the final section addresses the way we understand warfare, focusing on media representations, imagery and memory to explain why confrontation, conflict and combat have been and are likely to remain a pivotal part of human society and a deciding factor in international affairs. Bringing an impressive range of themes and expertise together in an accessible, articulately written form, "The Ashgate Research Companion to Modern Warfare" is essential reading.
