This summer, William S. Hein & Co., Inc. releases its newest HeinOnline database, Military and Government

JUNE 28, 2021

Establishing and maintaining a military force is one of the oldest traditions in human history. After centuries of military administration and development, the United States Armed Forces are now considered the world’s most powerful. Aside from their obvious role as a fighting force, the missions of each military branch have evolved over time to include humanitarian assistance, natural disaster relief, rescue operations, and policing the seas against piracy and drug smuggling, as just a few examples.

With such crucial responsibilities, the military continues to be paramount in the defense and betterment of the United States. With HeinOnline’s new Military and Government database, research the functions of the federal government in administering these essential armed forces, as well as the issues confronting service personnel both on and off the battlefield—from women’s changing role in the military to the development of new weaponry to navigating benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs after service, and much more.

To assist a wider audience in researching this ever-evolving subject, HeinOnline is pleased to incorporate Military and Government as a complimentary addition to select U.S. and Canadian Core package subscriptions.

About the Military and Government Database

Users can now research the essential functions, practices, and procedures of the U.S. military with primary source documents such as committee prints, government reports, congressional hearings, legislative histories, and the entirety of three Code of Federal Regulations Titles (6, 32, and 38) and multiple relevant U.S. Code Titles (6, 10, 14, 32, 34, 37, 38, and 50)—all from within one database. Supplement primary source research with thought-provoking books, serials, periodicals, and scholarly articles, carefully curated and added to this database for their analyses and discussions of military life, operations, administration, and related issues. Finally, also find the entirety of the Pentagon Papers in a fully searchable format, allowing researchers access to these critical documents for understanding foreign policy during the Vietnam War.

In addition, to aid users in browsing and searching all of this content, every title in the database has been meticulously subject-coded by HeinOnline editors based on the topic discussed and service branch in question. Subjects include Ethics and Law of War, Diversity in the Military, Terrorism and Insurgency, Military Health and Wellness Issues, and more than 25 more.
