About the Author

Rachel Woodward is a Lecturer in the School of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne. She is the co-author of Leadership and Local Power in Contemporary Rural Europe (2002) and has written numerous journal articles on military land use, on rural development, and on gender and the military.


This lively and engaging book sets an exciting new agenda for research into militarism and its geographies. A rich insight into militarism's 'hold' on places. Neil Ward, University of Leeds A pioneering study of military geographies bringing all the issues into sharp focus. By examining the environmental, cultural, economic and political dimensions of militarism through the lens of geography and a wealth of case studies (many from the UK), this book is a unique and important contribution to the literature. It will become an essential reference in the field. John Lovering, Professor of Urban Development and Governance, Cardiff University "Military a must for anyone who opposes the military's use of our special landscapes. This authoritive book, by an expert in military land-use, is about the paternalistic, arrogant and unnecessarily secretive way in which the military occupies land. Woodward warns that 'we should be cautious about assuming an automatic economic benefit to a locality from military presence'. A fascinating book, and a useful campaigning tool." Open Space, Vol 28/2, Spring 2005.
