Book Description

March 28 2008

The Unwilling and the Reluctant: Theoretical Perspectives on Disobedience in the Military and The Apathetic and the Defiant: Case Studies of Canadian Mutiny and Disobedience, 1812-1919 are the first two volumes in a series devoted to disobedience issues in the Canadian military. Now with The Insubordinate and the Noncompliant, the trilogy is complete.

Military leadership has both formal and informal dimensions. The formal leadership of any organization must ensure that it minimizes the divergence between institutional aims and the actions of informal leaders. When this separation occurs, the result is sometimes mutiny. These incidents of insubordination and noncompliance represent a form of dialogue between military personnel and their leadership. The Insubordinate and the Noncompliant offers a perspective on the Canadian experience with military mutiny in the twentieth century in an effort to provide relevant lessons for today.

The Unwilling and the Reluctant: Theoretical Perspectives on Disobedience in the Military and The Apathetic and the Defiant: Case Studies of Canadian Mutiny and Disobedience, 1812-1919 are the first two volumes in a series devoted to disobedience issues in the Canadian military. Now with The Insubordinate and the Noncompliant, the trilogy is complete.

Military leadership has both formal and informal dimensions. The formal leadership of any organization must ensure that it minimizes the divergence between institutional aims and the actions of informal leaders. When this separation occurs, the result is sometimes mutiny. These incidents of insubordination and noncompliance represent a form of dialogue between military personnel and their leadership. The Insubordinate and the Noncompliant offers a perspective on the Canadian experience with military mutiny in the twentieth century in an effort to provide relevant lessons for today.



Like the other learned authors in this book, Horn dissects the underlying causes of events by looking at them from the perspective of those who are not in authority, a perspective on military leadership that is seldom considered: the view from below.

[This book] should appeal to serious students of military history as well as potential leaders at all levels.

3.0 out of 5 stars worth reading May 25 2012
Format:Paperback
In addition to the two previous works in this series (The Unwilling and the Reluctant and The Apathetic and the Defiant), this book -- though not magnificently well written -- is clear, concise and provides valuable and thought provoking inquiry into leadership, management and command within the context of the Canadian Forces.
Readers will appreciate the great detail with which cases are examined, including excerpts from official reports as well as interviews with those at the highest and lowest levels of the military hierarchy.
As a serving senior non-commissioned member of the Forces, I found this book and the others in this series highly informative as they provided a great deal of practical insights.
