This is the handbook for a course that I run at the Department of War Studies, King’s College London. You will find all the administrative details for the course on KEATS. This includes, but isn’t limited to: venues/timings for lectures and seminars, deadlines for assessments, my office hours/location. For your convenience, this handbook is available as a pdf file and as a static website.
