  • The New Aztecs: Ritual and Restraint in Contemporary Western Military Operations

    July 08, 2011

    Authored by Dr. Zhivan Alach.
    The Western way of war has come full circle. After centuries, indeed millennia, of evolution toward increased totality and brutality, it has turned back once again to the ritualistic and restrained methods of primitive warfare.

  • Slowing Military Change

    October 29, 2008

    Authored by Dr. Zhivan Alach.
    The author revises, reexamines, and reevaluates the contemporary military environment. He finds that the environment is a period of relative military stasis, of slow technological development, and of little novelty in broader issues. If anything, it is a return to an older period, of the time before the Cold War, before the fear of nuclear war dominated all other thinking in the field.
