Democratic Control of the Military in Postcommunist Europe: Guarding the Guards

Synopsis

This major comparative study examines the challenges faced by the countries of postcommunist Central and Eastern Europe in securing democratic control of their armed forces and establishing a civilian control of defense policy. The book explores how the interaction of the common challenges of postcommunism and the diverse circumstances of individual countries shape civil-military relations in this changing region. Detailed country case studies written by leading experts compare the experiences of Poland, Romania, the Baltic republics, the former Yugoslav republics, Russia, and Ukraine.
