Educational Reference Publication

Preface: This volume surveys the American experience in war with emphasis on the complex interactions between political and military affairs. We know of no other single volume that systematically addresses the interwoven political and military factors that comprise the American experience. The specialist will find little that is new here as the authors have relied exclusively on reputable published sources. What is new is the amalgamation of so many diverse factors in an attempt to portray the totality of the American experience. The intended primary audience for this work is threefold. First, we believe that civilian decision makers with a limited background in military affairs could profit from reading this volume. Second, we believe that military leaders with a limited background in political affairs could find this volume valuable. Finally, all who are concerned with national security affairs but who are unfamiliar with the complex relationships that bind together war and political activity should form an interested audience.
