Product description

Review

The problem of civilamilitary relations is of critical importance in American affairsa¦ Huntington establishes his basic propositions, formulates his theoretical framework, and analyzes historical and contemporary developments in the United States and abroad with skill and insight. The clarity and precision with which the book moves forward make it a delight to read.Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social ScienceThe book contains many insights about both America and its soldiers, and the thought behind many of its conclusions is hard and cleana¦ It also disposes of a number of prejudices about the military that still clog the policy processa¦ Here is a book to make one think.American Political Science Review

From the Back Cover

In a classic work, Samuel P. Huntington challenges most of the old assumptions and ideas on the role of the military in society. Stressing the value of the military outlook for American national policy, Huntington has performed the distinctive task of developing a general theory of civil-military relations and subjecting it to rigorous historical analysis.
