Product Description

Review

'Military Migrants is a "must read" for people who care about the realities behind the rituals of our militaries. Vron Ware has done such innovative research. The men and women - from Fiji, Nepal, Jamaica, Belize, Ghana - whom the British military recruit to fight Britain's wars come alive on these pages. They have ideas and aspirations and savvy assessments of their own. This is a brilliant book.' - Cynthia Enloe, Research Professor of International Development and Women's Studies at Clark University, USA and author of Nimo's Wars, Emma's War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War

'Is a multicultural British Army a symbol of progress? The figure of the black or Muslim soldier is invoked publicly as a symbol of inclusive Britishnness, and at the same time the diversity of culture and faith are used to enhance and update Britain's claim to global power. This stunning and beautifully written book is essential reading for anyone interested in the multicultural question today.' - Les Back, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK and author of The Art of Listening
 
'If we are what we defend, then Military Migrants takes us to the heart of how we are defended and what this means. It is both a careful, scrupulous book and a riveting journey through our own country; one filled with new vistas when sometimes all too familiar sounds and images are revealed in unexpected circumstances, as Vron Ware literally brings home to the reader how the country is taking new shapes while resisting change.' - Anthony Barnett, Founder of opendemocracy.net and author of Iron Britannia
 
'The treatment of Foreign & Commonwealth soldiers within the British Armed Forces is being hotly debated, so the publication of this important work will help generate vital debate!' - Dr Hugh Milroy, Chief Executive, Veterans Aid, UK

great book for all 7 April 2014
By J. Cheung - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read this for a class in international relations, but it turned out to be a book I would have read for fun. The study of the treatment of foreign and commonwealth soldiers in the UK is fascinating. The author does a great job showing all sides - UK citizens, commonwealth soldiers, and even their spouses. As a US soldier, I think many of the ideas on immigration and diversity presented in this book are relevant to me and the US military. Highly recommended for all!
