Reviews

"Military globalization entails the increase in range and decrease in time of power necessary to accomplish objectives (compression of space-time factor). Military globalization is precluded pre-Modern regional military expansions. The regional and global stages constitute two scales of essentially one continuous process. The book includes political developments intersected with military globalization, such as expansion of political systems, imperial expansion and alliance politics."
