Cosmopolitan Theory, Militaries and the Deployment of Force
Cosmopolitan Theory, Militaries and the Deployment of Force. Western militaries are increasingly used not for the defence of the state but for policing a global citizenry. Lorraine Elliott and Graeme Cheeseman subject the philosophical basis behind this shift to critical questioning (are we really one humanity?) and consider the possible implications for the military itself.
