Thousands of diverse publications related to the history, glory, and administration of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, and Coast Guard
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 U.S. 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 Revolution on up to the present War on Terror, with selected titles from English military history to supplement understanding of the development of America’s own military law. To aid users as they 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).

Contains documents covering Issues of human rights and social justice; expansion of civil rights in America; gun regulation in America; and legal / historical materials relating to the institution of slavery.
In October 2016, HeinOnline unveiled Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture & Law, a unique database released free of charge on a global scale to help librarians guide their communities and create an environment for open and positive dialogue. Less than three years later, we announced another free database, Gun Regulation and Legislation in America, with the same vision. In 2020, we were proud to offer Civil Rights and Social Justice, another free research database dedicated to the fight for civil rights in America. In 2021, at a crucial moment in history, we are proud to offer the Open Society Justice Initiative, as the fourth free database within our Social Justice Suite.
