Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a superb, penetrating, comprehensive, balanced analysis. Peter Feaver and Richard Kohn highlight what they see as worrisome trends: the 'Republicanization' of the officer corps and the growing belief among officers that top military leaders should not just advise political leaders on military policy but should insist that political leaders adopt the right policy. Feaver and Kohn nonetheless put these trends in the broader context of changes in civilian society and argue that while there is no crisis, there is cause for concern. For years to come this book will be the indispensable starting point for debates on and further studies of American civil-military relations." - Samuel P. Huntington, Albert J. Weatherhead University Professor, Harvard University "This is one of the most important works in national security to appear in years... a masterpiece of modern interdisciplinary analysis." - Charles Moskos, Professor of Sociology, Northwestern University
