Faculty fellow Jim Golby and Mara Karlin have written an article in Task and Purpose to discuss the politicalization of the US Military.
"We don’t want a military that is “apolitical”; we instead want a military that avoids partisanship, institutional endorsements, and electoral influence. Those topics should stay off limits, but politics are too critical to be entirely ignored by the military. The military is a political creature — it’s time for it to consider what that means in a more practical and appropriate manner."
Faculty Fellow Jim Golby discusses civ-mil relations in new United States Studies Center article from Sydney University: "The Role of the US Military in Quelling Domestic Protests."
The new episode of “This is Democracy” examines the evolving role of the military in a democratic society and the limits on how leaders can deploy force. Hosted by faculty fellow Jeremi Suri and featuring our Associate Director, Paul Edgar.
Our distinguished Senior Fellow General Vince Brooks has published “Dismay and Disappointment—A Breach of Sacred Trust,” discussing the use of military resources on American streets.
