CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The editors of the series “Warfare, Society and Culture”, published by Pickering & Chatto (www.pickeringchatto.com/warfare), invite emerging and established scholars to submit proposals for new monographs or edited collections of essays.
The series is edited by David Trim (University of Reading), Paul Hammer (University of Colorado, Boulder), Louis Sicking (Leiden University) and Frank Tallett (University of Reading). Our aim is to publish books that integrate considerations of the social and cultural dimensions of armies, navies, and the institutions that support them, with analysis of the actual business of armies and navies — waging war.
While there is no geographic limit to the series, and we are interested in warfare around the world, our series focuses on the modern era, broadly defined (i.e., since ca. 1500). Books published or contracted to date range from Europe to Asia and from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries.
We are interested in books that consider the actual business of war –– military operations, and how they are planned, controlled, supplied, and conducted, including combat. But we are also seeking books that consider campaigns and combat in socio-cultural context: produces a richer and more nuanced understanding of warfare; and examining conflicts as collisions between different, often competing cultures, affords a valuable addition to the standard political, ideological and economic perspectives.
If you have an idea for a monograph or edited collection of essays on warfare in the modern world, please contact one of the series editors (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com), or Mr Daire Carr (Junior Commissioning Editor for History at Pickering & Chatto) at firstname.lastname@example.org
