"In The Soul of Armies, Dr. Long... explores the question: how does an army's organizational culture impact how it conducts counter-insurgency? Long argues an army’s ability to execute a counter-insurgency campaign is rooted in formative experiences during the 19th century. Policymakers, military professionals, and scholars will all gain insights from this book. Long provides cause for introspection by those who variously formulate policy, conduct operations, and study this new way of war. Although Long presents convincing evidence that organizational culture impacts the conduct of counter-insurgency operations, as he points out, the key for successful campaigns must rest beyond organizational culture alone."-- Colonel Ian C. Rice, Parameters
"Through its wealth of empirical material, it shows not only that culture matters but also how. The Soul of Armies is a must read for all those interested in where the ongoing debate on military culture, and on culture in general, is heading, and it paves the way for a return to the study of culture and of the stickiness of ideas in international politics.", Perspectives on Politics
"Why are some armies better at counterinsurgency than others? Austin Long provides the most convincing answer yet by showing how organizational culture shapes military doctrine and practice. Critically, he finds that this matters less than one might think. Success in counterinsurgency ultimately depends on reliable local government and security partners. This is an insightful and important book."-- Theo Farrell, Head of the Department of War Studies, King's College London
