Call for Reviewers: Global Military Studies Review

In January 2018, Simon Fraser University Press will launch the open access review journal Global Military Studies Review. The purpose of this new tri-annual publication format is to provide an overview of the newest publications in the broad field of Military Studies (History, IR, Political Science, Security Studies, etc.)

We therefore ask interested reviewers to send us a short statement of interest to review for this new journal and up to three fields of interest. A current list of titles available for review will also be provided on request.

Book review: Lawrence of Arabia’s War: The Arabs, the British and the Remaking of the Middle East in WW1, by Neil Faulkner.

The story of the young war hero has historically captivated Western readers for decades. However, in the recent past, there have been calls to engage more deeply with the lesser-known histories and broader participants in the First World War. In this context, Sneha Reddy argues that Faulkner’s book goes in the other direction and shifts the spotlight back to Lawrence by making him the central focus of his study. Nonetheless, she adds, for a book that is a result of a ten-year endeavour, ending in 2014, to study modern conflict archaeology as part of the Great Arab Revolt Project, it is uniquely placed.

Author: Sneha Reddy is a PhD student at the School of International Relations in the University of St Andrews. Her research focuses on French North African and British Indian soldiers in the First World War in the Middle East.
