“A provocative volume to initiate and inspire others.” • Choice

“This volume provides an extremely valuable contribution to the academic and military professional literatures … This volume will quickly become one that individuals turn to in order to inform their thinking and their collegial arguments.” • Alan Okros, Canadian Forces College


Bringing together new research by leading scholars, this volume rethinks the role played by militaries in politics. It introduces new theories of military politics, arguing against the inherited theories and practices of civil-military relations, and presents rich new data on senior officership and on the intersection of military politics and military operations. As the first volume in Berghahn Books’ Military Politics series, it provides a blueprint for a new research paradigm dedicated to tracing how militaries shape their political environments, focusing particularly on the core democratic questions raised by politically-effective (and ineffective) militaries.

Thomas Crosbie is an Associate Professor of military operations at the Royal Danish Defence College. In addition to his articles and book chapters, he has edited volumes on the privatization of security (with Ori Swed), paramilitary culture (with Brad West), and maritime operations (with Edward R. Lucas, Samuel Rivera-Paez, and Felix Falck Jensen).
