Critical Concepts in Military, Strategic, and Security Studies

The Critical Concepts in Military, Strategic, and Security Studies series is part of Routledge’s Major Works publishing programme.

Designed to meet research, reference, and teaching needs across the humanities and social sciences, Routledge Major Works gather together the best and most influential work on particular concepts, subjects, and individuals. Each Routledge Major Work is edited by a leading scholar in the field to create a ‘mini library’—generally a set of four or five volumes. The sets consist of a careful selection of previously published articles from a variety of journals, excerpts or chapters from previously published books, and materials from other sources which together provide users with historical purchase on the concept, subject, or individual in question, as well as a thorough overview of current issues.
