This edited volume analyses siege warfare as a discrete type of military engagement, in the face of which civilians are particularly vulnerable. Siege warfare is a form of combat that has usually had devastating effects on civilian populations. From the near-contemporary Siege of Sarajevo to the real and mythical sieges of the ancient Mediterranean, this has been a recurring type of military engagement which, through bombardment, starvation, disease and massacre, places non-combatants at the heart of battle.

Australian Foreign Policy in Asia: Middle Power or Awkward Partner? ByAllan Patience
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 331 Pages | ISBN : 3319693468 | 3.25 MB
This book sets out to discuss what kind of ‘middle power' Australia is, and whether its identity as a middle power negatively influences its relationship with Asia. It looks at the history of the middle power concept, develops three concepts of middle power status and examines Australia's relationships with China, Japan and Indonesia as a focus. It argues that Australia is an ‘awkward partner' in its relations with Asia due to both its historical colonial and discriminatory past, as well its current dependence upon the United States for a security alliance. It argues this should be changed by adopting a new middle power concept in Australian foreign policy.
