Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Military Geographies ... is 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)
