Editorial Reviews


A courageous, definitive work.

(Joseph J. Collins Joint Force Quarterly)

Desch's book... already has proven influential in shaping the debate within the academic and the policymaking communities. The book is important because it makes a bold argument based on a clearly advanced theory and tests it against an extraordinary range of cases... A landmark study.

(American Political Science Review)

A refreshing addition to the literature on civil-military relations. It challenges traditional explanations and contributes to several different important theoretical and policy debates.

(Journal of Military History)

A timely book with a provocative thesis.

(Glen M. Segell Millennium)
