Armed Servants by Peter D. Feaver

Book Description

How do civilians control the military? In the wake of September 11, the renewed presence of national security in everyday life has made this question all the more pressing. In this book, Peter Feaver proposes an ambitious new theory that treats civil-military relations as a principal-agent relationship, with the civilian executive monitoring the actions of military agents, the "armed servants" of the nationstate. Military obedience is not automatic but depends on strategic calculations of whether civilians will catch and punish misbehavior.

Paying the Human Costs of War by Peter D. Feaver Paying the Human Costs of War, Paperback (February 2009)

From the Korean War to the conflict in Iraq, this book examines the ways in which the American public decides whether to support the use of military force. Contrary to the conventional view, it demonstrates that the public does not respond reflexively and solely to the number of casualties in a conflict.

Choosing Your Battles by Peter D. Feaver Choosing Your Battles, Paperback (August 2005)

America's debate over whether and how to invade Iraq clustered into civilian versus military camps. This book shows that this civilian-military argument - which has characterized earlier debates over Bosnia, Somalia, and Kosovo - is typical, not exceptional. It traces these themes through the first two years of the Iraq war.
