RENSEIGNEMENT ET SOCIÉTÉ DE L’INFORMATION de Francis Beau Préface de l’Amiral Pierre Lacoste En quoi l'évolution politique des nouveaux enjeux militaires influe- t-elle sur la nature de l'information utile? Quelles sont les répercussions dues à la facilité d'acquisition de l'information en temps réel et quel est l'impact d'Internet accessible à tous? Cette démocratisation de la connaissance entraîne-t-elle une perte de pouvoir pour le décideur? Comment choisir et traiter cette information pour la rendre pertinente en vue de la décision à prendre? L'analyse de ce qu'est le renseignement et des besoins exprimés par le décideur essaie de répondre à ces questions. Elle complète la description des cycles et des grandes fonctions du renseignement, de son exploitation et des méthodes de travail que l'évolution des technologies a complètement propulsées dans le XXIème siècle: banque de connaissances et traitement automatique des informations qui permettent une veille sur des sujets définis à l'avance et dans la durée.

Slight wear to spine, covers & corners. a “stock-taking exercise” of the concept of militarism is long overdue, and this concise, cogent, and lucid book does the job admirably . There are few books of which it can be said that they should be read. This is one.’ Martin Kitchen, The International History Review ‘Without any doubt the book under review here will be indispensable to anyone intending to tackle the problem of militarism past and present.’ Stig Förster, Bulletin of the German Historical Institute . an admirable example of a social-science-minded historian engaging with a major problem of our times, to the equal advantage of those who seek wisdom and understanding looking backwards and those who do so looking forward.’ Geoffrey Best, British Book News . the first clear account in the English language of how the term “militarism” has been metamorphosed from the early 19th century uses of the word to the sophisticated political-science analyses of the present day . The book is purposefully written as an introductory work, being short, lucid, unburdened by over-many footnotes, and wearing its scholarship lightly .

BORNSCHIER, VOLKER & CHRISTOPHER CHASE-DUNN (EDITORS)
The Future of Global Conflict (Sage Studies in International Sociology No 49)
Sage Publications, London, 1999. First paperback edition, Paperback. New. 310 pages. With tables and diagrams. Light shelfwear. The Future of Global Conflict For the last 500 years the global political economy has evidenced boom and bust, and long periods of peace as well as intense world wars. Will the cycles of boom and bust, peace and war, continue? Or have recent changes so profoundly altered the structure of world systems that these cycles will end or take on a less destructive form? The Future of Global Conflict is a critical analysis of both long-term trends and recent developments in the world systems. Contributors, including many noted international scholars, examine the question of future dominance of the core global systems. The volume includes comprehensive discussion of the economic, political and military role of the Pacific Rim, Japan and the former Soviet Union. The central questions that inform The Future of Global Conflict are whether the historical sequence of the rise and fall of dominant powers will be replaced by a new supranational structure of competition and co-operation in the next 25 years, or whether the process of rivalry for domination will end in catastrophic global war. The Future of Global Conflict will be an essential reference for students of sociology and politics. Volker Bornschier is Professor of Sociology at the University of Zurich in Switzerland.

CLAYTON, ANTHONY
The Wars of French Decolonization (Modern Wars In Perspective)
Longman, London, 1994. First edition, Paperback. Very Good+. 234 pages. With maps. Top edge and fore edge somewhat soiled. Light wear to spine, covers & corners. THE WARS OF FRENCH DECOLONIZATION is the second title to be published in an ambitious new series that offers wide-ranging studies of specific wars, and distinct phases of warfare, from the close of the Middle Ages to the present day. The series aims to advance the current integration of military history into the academic mainstream. To that end, the books are not merely traditional campaign narratives, but examine the causes, course and consequences of major conflicts, in their full international political, diplomatic, social and ideological contexts. Anthony Clayton s ambitious survey draws together into a single integrated account the two major wars of decolonization fought by France in Indochina (in the early 1950s) and Algeria (in the late 1950s), as well as the smaller but far from insignificant military operations that the French conducted in Madagascar, Tunisia and Morocco. Fought at different times and in very different theatres, these conflicts - little explored in English-language scholarship as yet - have tended to be seen in isolation. By bringing them together within the covers of a single succinct analytical survey, and treating them as different manifestations of the same historical process, Dr Clayton has filled a major gap in the literatures of modem France, decolonization, and postwar military history alike. The military operations are set in their widest context. Amongst the themes explored in detail are: • the traditional French attitudes to empire, and how these changed under the pressure of events; • the French Army’s counter-revolutionary warfare school in the 1950s, and its politically dangerous doctrines; • the collapse of the Fourth Republic and the return to power of de Gaulle; • the final drama of withdrawal from Algeria, with its “ethnic cleansing” of the European settler population. A model of clear exposition, the study offers fascinating opportunities for comparison with the more familiar decolonization process in the British Empire (on the military aspects of which a volume will be published in the series in due course). The book includes a full Chronology, Biographical Notes, and Notes on Further Reading. Anthony Clayton has been a Senior Lecturer at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, since 1965.

COOTE, STEPHEN
Napoleon and the Hundred Days
Pocket Books, London, 2005. First edition thus, Paperback. New/No Dust Jacket. 9780743449939 308 pages. With b/w & coloured plates & illustrations. In Vienna, 1815, as the political aristocrats of Europe assembled to determine the fate of the continent after the wars of the last twenty years, the news arrives that Napoleon has returned to France. Bonaparte -- the revolutionary turned emperor and 'disturber of the world's peace' -- had been defeated and exiled to Elba, but now he is fast advancing on Paris, gathering troops and taking cities without firing a single shot. Europe's peace is not to last. NAPOLEON AND THE HUNDRED DAYS brilliantly re-lives the rise and fall of Bonaparte's empire, and brings to life the characters who shaped it: Wellington, the Iron Duke; Napoleon's great love, Josephine; the duplicitous Tallyrand, his erstwhile foreign secretary; and, of course, Napoleon himself. Showing where the mistakes were made and how the path to war became inexorable, it culminates in a virtuoso description of the Battle of Waterloo itself. Displaying his customary blend of historian's and novelist's eye, Stephen Coote paints a vivid portrait of the legendary emperor and military genius, whose energy, courage and tenacity won -- and lost -- him a vast empire. Size: Octavo (standard book size). Multiple copies available this title. Quantity Available: 2. Shipped Weight: Under 750 grams.

DRIVER, JACK M.
The Templars Holy Warrior Monks of the Ancient Lands
Hardback Kandour, London, 2007. First edition, Hardcover. New/new. 9781905741212 160 pages. With b/w & coloured decorated title, maps, plates & illustrations. Dan Brown's Da Vince Code and Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln's classic The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail have awakened a world-wide interest in the mysterious organization called The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon or the Knights Templar as they are more commonly known. For the amateur researcher however, it is almost impossible to separate fact from fiction, given the many fantastic claims made for this brotherhood of ascetic warrior monks. Were they guardians of the bloodline of Christ? What if anything did they discover beneath the Temple of Solomon? Why were they so brutally suppressed, and did they survive underground for nearly four centuries to eventually declare themselves as the Society of Freemasons in 1717? Indulge your curiosity and satisfy your doubts once and for all in this beautifully illustrated and meticulously researched book. Size: Quarto. Item Type: Hardback. Multiple copies available this title. Quantity Available: 2. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

GANDER, TERRY
Machine Guns
The Crowood Press , Ramsbury, 2003. First edition, Hardcover. New/new. 192 pages. With frontispiece, plates & illustrations. The machine gun has been around since the end of the 19th century and its impact on warfare cannot be overestimated. Its capability of prolonged fire, ability to wipe out dozens of victims in a single burst without the need for enormous accuracy on the part of the operator, has made it a fearsome weapon. It extracted a huge toll during World War I and in the 21st century it is still a potent weapon in the hands of troops on the ground and in the air. This history sums up the development of the weapon. Information on all the most important designs, including Maxim, Browning, Lewis and Degtyarev, as well as specifications of the most significant models are included. Size: Quarto.

HARRIES-JENKINS, GWYN
THE ARMY IN VICTORIAN SOCIETY (Studies in Social History)
Routledge & Kegan Paul, London, 1977. First British Edition, Original Boards. Very Good/very good. 320 pages. Former owner's name on front free endpaper. Some annotations or underlining in pencil. Slight wear & slight soiling to spine, covers, corners & dustjacket. Although in Victorian society the Army was the aristocratic backbone of England, it was persistently engaged in fighting Colonial wars. In exploring the paradoxes of the relationship between the Army and Victorian society, Gwyn Harries-Jenkins explains that the Army was an unknown institution to the British public as a whole. The emerging middle class refused to serve as officers whilst the industrial and rural workers regarded a man who had joined the Army as a disgrace to the family name. Both these groups resented the privileges of the military, and each, in its own way, deplored the exclusiveness of army life. When its Army was defeated, the public reacted violently criticising its amateurism and lack of professionalism. When the Army was successful, the public basked in the reflected glory, a situation which led a foreign observer to ask how this blind glorification and worship of the army could be reconciled with the con-temptuous dislike felt towards its mem-bers. The study also considers the reaction of the Army to the political and economic situation of the times, after the triumph of Waterloo, through the administrative débâcle of the Crimea and the appalling defeats of the Boer War. Ultimately the author demonstrates that the Army was the mirror of society, its strengths and weaknesses reflecting the characteristics of the Victorian period, and confirming a national wish to retain a traditional way of life in a century of technological and social change. The Author Gwyn Harries-Jenkins is a Faculty member in the Department of Adult Education at the University of Hull. He is Chairman of the British Inter- University Seminar on Armed Forces and Society, and Vice-Chairman of the Research Committee on Armed Forces and Society of the International Socio-logical Association. His previous public-ations include The Military and the Problem of Legitimacy (Sage Publications Ltd, 1976). Size: Octavo (standard book size). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 750 grams.
