Well researched and written analysis on American Civil-Military Relations Nov. 25 2006
By MountainRunner - Published on
Format: Paperback
A great text with another view on civil-military relations. Breaks Feaver's principal-agent model of US civil-military relations and builds a very strong case of a three-way relationship. Stevenson effectively demonstrates that while the US military "is a very loyal and subordinate is often cross-pressured by its two masters and it often feels compelled to turn to one for relief from the other." Analysis of the American experience with the military is deep and at the same time an easy read. Stevenson adroitly examines Presidential power and desires during war, rearmamment, and transformation, all phases we've gone through multiple times. He also addresses other c-m theorists ("shortcomings of existing theories") as a sort of overview of what else is out there. A must have for anybody wanting more on the use and role of the US military in America.
