Annotation:

“In this paper a look is ventured at how the military use of the ‘Information Age’ merges neoliberalism and masculinism. The analysis of these military documents shows an important aspect of how this state reproduces itself. I strive to scrape out the political dimensions of identity discernible in these particular military documents. The identity traits worked out shall be thoroughly queried for their ideological and gendered underpinnings” (Brunner, 2005, 2).
