HeinOnline’s Military and Government collection brings together thousands of diverse publications related to the history, glory, might, and daily nitty-gritty of administrating America’s fighting forces. Composed of books, Congressional hearings, committee prints, legislative histories, CRS and GAO Reports, and more, this database allows users to research the functions of the federal government in administrating the armed forces and the issues confronting service personnel both on and off the battlefield, from women’s changing role in the military, hollow forces, the development of new weaponry, free speech rights, and navigating benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs after service. With funding to the Department of Defense making up the largest portion of the United States federal budget—spending more on its military than any other country in the world, at $721.5 billion in FY2020—users will find a large number of publications devoted to appropriating, authorizing, and accounting for funds spent by the military, as well as debate on the necessity and effects of spending such large sums. Legislative histories on relevant legislation—on Selective Service, military justice, war claims, veteran’s health care, the Posse Comitatus Act, and more—help to flesh out the interaction of the federal government with the functioning of the military and its structural changes over time. Coverage in this collection deals with military issues from the American Civil War on up to the present War on Terror. To aid users navigate the amount of content in this collection, HeinOnline editors have subject-coded every title in this collection based on its content and service branch (when applicable).
