Summary

“In this book, the contributors look at the issue of civilian control of the military from a comparative viewpoint. They examine several countries where the civilian government appears to be in control of the military, looking for some underlying principles which allowed that control to develop. The countries examined are India, Guyana, Malaysia, the Philippines, China, Japan, Finland, Mexico, Lebanon and Chile. Welch provides introductory and closing essays that establish a framework for discussion. The thrust of the book is to tell not why civilian regimes fail, but why some succeed.” — Military Review

“A remarkably cohesive book. The style is straightforward and the material well presented.” — Air University Review

“A solid work.” — Perspective
