The West’s Last War? Neo-Interventionism, Strategic Surprise, and the Waning Appetite for Playing the Away Game

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

Why maintain armed forces? The question is as fundamental as the answer unambiguous: Because democracies have national and common interests to defend. One current of thought contends that the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan are setting the tone for the sort of future interventions that await the Western military alliance.
