A detailed, thorough and imaginative study of the four service academies which looks at both their historical development and their current problems. The distinctiveness of each is emphasized, as is the importance of the leadership role of the Superintendents. The author, a West Point graduate who is now professor of political science at Indiana University, has full command of his subject and has written a definitive work.
