About the Book

A major new study of the realities of contemporary warfare, which presents a range of fresh insights and is essential reading for all students and professionals engaged in the field.

This book clearly shows us that:

  • neither military nor civilian agencies can act effectively alone in resolving modern conflicts
  • joint civil-military efforts are needed, and those efforts must be deliberately planned from the outset of an operation; they cannot be added on as afterthoughts when all else has failed
  • the record of our efforts over nearly a decade and a half since the end of the Cold War demonstrates that we are doing badly at creating civil-military partnerships, and that we are not getting better.

James V. Arbuckle shows how these issues are neither structural nor organizational - they are cultural. They involve attitudes, beliefs, perceptions - positive and negative, true and false. The solutions will involve changing attitudes, moving beyond prejudices, replacing competition with cooperation. The principal mechanisms for this will be common civil-military training and education.


About the Author:

James V. Arbuckle served 36 years as an infantryman in Canada and in Germany, and with UNFICYP and UNPROFOR. He is a member of the Faculty of the Lester B. Pearson Canadian International Peacekeeping Training Centre, and was from 1999-2003 working with the OSCE. He now lives in Austria.
