In this exploration of the nature of occupation, Eric Carlton concentrates on the complex relationship between military authority and civilian population and explores the methods used by dominant powers ot maintain their authority. Drawing from a wide range of case studies, including examinations of British colonial interests in India and the Nazi atrocities of the Second World War, Dr Carlton assesses the nature of social control and the effect of ideology on the exercising of power, and considers the moral aspects of military repression.
