Overview

Describing and theorizing "the new imperialism" in international relations, this volume presents anthropological and sociological viewpoints on the topics of militarism and militarization; humanitarian interventionism; the responsibility to protect; Canada's

role in the occupation of Afghanistan, and the establishment of what is effectively a protectorate in Haiti; the role of NGOs in

the formation and management of a new global imperium; and, soft power. Specific case studies are also devoted to the U.S. Army's Human Terrain System; the U.S. Army's Africa Command (AFRICOM); torture and international law; Coca Cola in Colombia; the NATO war in Kosovo; cultural militarization and "militainment;" and, the rising militarism in Canadian public discourse.
