The editorial team of International Political Sociology is happy to announce its latest IPS Virtual Issue: “On War Today”.
This special issue collects a sample of articles previously published in International Political Sociology that engage contemporary politics of war. We selected two themes that have featured prominently in international political sociology. The first focuses on political issues at stake in visualising war and the bodies of soldiers and what representational methods tell us about the relation between war and politics today. The second issue concerns the idea of new wars. Between them the selected articles explore the nature of contemporary wars, if there is anything new about them, and what a critical and international political sociological war studies can be today.
The articles will be freely accessible until the end of 2015.
