‘More than any other occupation or organization, military endeavours are completely dependent upon trust. However, trust has many dimensions to it: trust in your comrades; trust in your allies and trust in your equipment. This book with contributions from experts from both sides of the Atlantic examines all these aspects of trust. This volume is set to become the definitive reference source for all researchers and practitioners working in this area.’ Don Harris, HFI Solutions Ltd.

The book reports on contemporary trends in the defence research community on trust in teams, and is part of Ashgate’s Human Factors in Defence series.
