Countervailing forces : enhancing civilian control and national security through Madisonian concepts by Christopher P Gibson( )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thesis concludes with policy recommendations aimed at strengthening the civilian side of the relationship. The key to this is to move beyond Huntington's "objective control" and Janowitz's "subjective control" to embrace Madisonian concepts of pluralism and competition among top-level civilian and military officials in the DOD. By fostering a healthy and balanced relationship at the Pentagon, elected leaders will enhance their control of the military while simultaneously getting better national security policy
