Going to War investigates the reasons why countries enter conicts by considering the depth and complexity of issues surrounding military deploy- ments. Showing how such conditions affect future decisions about the use of force contributors to this volume study recent experiences with military interventions such as regional ash points the global nancial crisis and public weariness to outline the crucial factors that inuence wartime decision-making. Through detailed discussion of threats capabilities trends and the impli- cations of Canadas and natos military experiences abroad Going to War determines that the reasons for warfare have as much to do with domestic concerns as they do with international threats. With essays by defence scien- tists established and emerging scholars and senior military ofcers from Germany the United States and Canada this volume includes debates on whether the number of military fatalities is being reduced wars changing character and the ways in which the improvised explosive device has and will continue to challenge modern advanced militaries deployed abroad especially in Afghanistan and Iraq. A sophisticated exercise in foreign and defence policy analysis Going to War provides clear and vivid ideas on how to optimize future Western military interventions.

Canadian Science Technology and Innovation Policy presents critical analysis about developments in the eld such as signicantly changed concepts of peer review merit review the emergence of big data in the digital age and the rise of an economy and society dominated by the Internet and information. The authors scrutinize the different ways in which federal and provincial policies have impacted both levels of government including how such policies impact on Canadas natural resources. They also study key government de- partments and agencies involved with science technology and innovation to show how these organizations function increasingly in networks and partner- ships as Canada seeks to keep up and lead in a highly competitive global sys- tem. The book also looks at numerous realms of technology across Canada in universities business and government and various efforts to analyze biotech- nology genomics and the Internet as well as earlier technologies such as nuclear reactors and satellite technology. The authors assess whether a sci- ence-and-technology-centred innovation economy and society has been established in Canada one that achieves a balance between commercial and social objectives including the delivery of public goods and supporting values related to redistribution fairness and community and citizen empowerment.
