Description:
Civil-military relations in America have essentially been a bargain to determine responsibilities and prerogatives of the civilian leadership and the military. Circumstances, be they political, social, or other, may render the terms of the bargain obsolete, resulting in tensions that call for their renegotiation. Substantial renegotiation of civil-military relations took place at the end of the Cold War and after the attacks of 9/11. Such debates bring on new answers to four questions that lie at the heart of civil-military relations: Who controls the military and how? Who serves? What is the appropriate role of the military? What degree of military influence is appropriate in a liberal society? Mackubin Thomas Owens examines answers to these questions in their historical context, both pre- and post-9/11--Publisher's description.
Introduction -- The theory and practice of civil-military relations -- Control of the military and the military's influence on American society -- The role of the military and military effectiveness -- Who serves? -- Renegotiating the US civil-military bargain into the future.
