“Guns and Roses by an exceptional group of expert authors provides a rich comparative analysis of global security dynamics in the challenges of forging new civil military relations in a rapidly changing world.”—Prof. Ralph Premdas, professor of public policy, University of the West Indies
This edited volume provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the latest developments on the relationship between the military and democratization, drawing examples from Asia, Pacific, Africa, Middle East and South America. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the book covers wide-ranging sub-themes within the broad rubric of military and democratization relating to gender, peace-building, civilian oversight, coups, geopolitical contestation, internal repression, etc. In doing so, the volume has an international comparative coverage with three inter-related levels of analysis—the global, regional and national.
