The editors of Scientia Militaria are proud to present the first edition of 2010. Thenew editors took over from Francois Vreÿ and a distinguished editorial team.Scientia Militaria was privileged to have had a succession of highly qualified andcommitted editors over the past decades. It is no small order to step into their shoes.To our benefit, many of the early members are still around, playing an active role;others are present as critical soundboards and sources of institutional memory andknowledge. As editorial collective, we intend to keep Scientia Militaria as anaccredited journal on a high standard with contents of interest to military scientists,military and strategic theorists, informed practitioners and civil society actors alike.Scientia Militaria is now in its 41st year. The journal acts as a showcase andtheoretical platform for security, military, strategy and civil-military matters fromboth the social and natural sciences. As an interdisciplinary journal, we would like tokeep this interface between various disciplines alive as part of the unending dialogueon security in its broadest possible scope. Given our context, the journal willcontinue to present a strong focus on the African continent in general and onSouth(ern) Africa in particular. With this scope and focus, we trust that the journalwill provide solid and pleasurable reading to our readership.
