Call for Publications
South Africa and the outbreak of the two World Wars
Special Issue June 2014
The editorial board of Scientia Militaria and the Department of Military History, Stellenbosch University, are pleased to announce the Call for Publications for a Special Issue of Scientia Militaria to mark the centenary of the eruption of the First World War and the seventieth-fifth anniversary of the start of the Second World War. 1914 and 1939 are key years in the history of South Africa. They mark critical culminations in decision-making on neutrality and political-military relations with the British Empire/Commonwealth and witnessed sudden, urgent activity in force design and preparation, increasing wartime industrial output, and the battle to win the heart of a nation fractured along lines of race, class, and nationality. Articles placing 1914 and 1939 in comparative perspective are especially welcomed. Contributions covering the periods preceding 1914 and 1939 or taking thematic approaches are equally encouraged.
Politics and alliances / National interest / Defence policy / Intelligence and the threat perception / Homefront / Mobilisation / Consumption / Economics / Industry / Resistance to the war / Propaganda / Military organisation, force design, preparation.
The current deadline to submit a proposal (a title and a 300-word abstract with short cv) is 30 June 2013.
