Publisher's Summary

Stressing the value of the military outlook for American national policy, Huntington has performed the distinctive task of developing a general theory of civil-military relations and subjecting it to rigorous historical analysis.

Hard to listen to

The content was interesting for the most part. I disagree with some of the opinions the author has but appreciated the history of the military offered. What really bothered me was the narrator. I found it hard to listen to his voice.
