About the Book

This book addresses the challenge of reforming defense and military policy-making in newly democratized nations. By tracing the development of civil-military relations in various new democracies from a comparative perspective, it links two bodies of scholarship that thus far have remained largely separate: the study of emerging (or failed) civilian control over armed forces on the one hand; and work on the roots and causes of military effectiveness to guarantee the protection and security of citizens on the other. The empirical and theoretical findings presented here will appeal to scholars of civil-military relations, democratization and security issues, as well as to defense policy-makers.

Dr. David Kuehn is Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Political Science, Heidelberg University, Germany. His research focuses on democratization and authoritarianism, especially the military's role in democratic transitions, the consolidation or breakdown of democracies, and the survival of authoritarian leaders. Next to these substantive topics, he is particularly interested in questions of social science methodology, especially concerning the fruitful combination of deductive theory and qualitative and quantitative empirical research methods. Since 2013, he is co-editor in charge of book reviews of the academic journal Democratization.
