Military Geographies by Ms Rachel Woodward

Book Description

Military Geographies is about how local space, place, environment and landscape are shaped by military presence, and about how wider geographies are touched by militarism. * A book about how local space, place, environment and landscape are shaped by military presence, and about how wider geographies are touched by militarism. * Sets a new agenda for the study of military geography with its critical analysis of the ways in which military control over space is legitimized. * Explores the ways in which militarism and military activities control development, the use of space and our understanding of place. * Focuses on military lands, establishments and personnel in contemporary peacetime settings. * Uses examples from Europe, North America and Australasia. * Draws on original research into the mechanisms by which the British government manages the defence estate. * Illustrated with maps, plans and other figures.

Sexing the Soldier by Ms Rachel Woodward Sexing the Soldier, Paperback (July 2007)

Presents a critical look at how gender is understood within the contemporary British Army.
