Civil-Military Relations: Building Democracy and Regional Security in Latin America, Southern Asia, and Central Europe

Synopsis

What is the impact of civil-military relations on the consolidation of democracy & the promotion of military & economic cooperation at the regional level? This volume is the first to provide a wealth of comparative experiences which demonstrates that a focus on civilian domination distorts the complexity of the civil-military relationship & does not appreciate the multiple paths to democracy & peace. Focusing on political values & institutional rules for political participation, David Mares has brought together an international cast in an accessible & valuable book for policymakers, academics, & general readers.
