In This Review

The Soldier and the State

By Samuel P. Huntington
Harvard University Press, 1957
534 pp. $7.50

A quite ambitious, stimulating and often exasperating book which undertakes to present a theory of civil-military relations, with particular application to the United States. The author has little regard for the premises of American liberalism and feels that "the disciplined order of West Point has more to offer than the garish individualism of Main Street."
