Soldiers and Civilians

The Civil-Military Gap and American National Security

Edited by Peter D. Feaver and Richard H. Kohn




Soldiers and Civilians analyzes the emerging civil-military "gap" in the United States, drawing on a major survey of military officers, civilian leaders, and the general public. The book's contributors, leading scholars of defense policy, find that numerous schisms have undermined civil-military cooperation and harmed military effectiveness.
