The Military and Politics in Modern Times
The Military and Politics in Modern Times
By Amos Perlmutter
Yale University Press, 1977, 335 pp

A major and surely lasting contribution to the growing literature on civil-military relations. Building upon his past analyses of the military in Israel and Egypt, Perlmutter enlarges his scope to the entire globe, boldly presenting typologies and concepts which will form the basis of new interpretations and intellectual controversies.
