AbstractThis issue of the Journal opens with a symposium consisting of six articles on the organization of force in the modern world. The first three deal with the issue of the induction of youth into a state's armed service, either by conscription or by joining a volunteer, market-wage paid force. The other three articles concern various aspects of the increasing trend toward privatization and internationalization of violent conflict, including how post-9/11 terrorist organizations finance themselves. In this issue, we also present three excellent overview articles. The first surveys accomplishments and challenges of research in defense economics, the second discusses recent developments in Russian military expenditure, and the third provides a very well-done, succinct summary of the academic literature on the economics of terrorism.
