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
This thesis argues that because of changes in the relative professional backgrounds (as measured by education and assignment history indicators) of the key players in the national security decisionmaking process and to the structural arrangements, norms, and rules of civil and military institutions (e.g., NSC, OSD, and JCS), military leaders have wielded more influence in the decisionmaking process since the end of the Cold War. The Goldwater-Nichols Defense Reorganization Act of 1986 has played a role in this, but the initial causes are traced to the military's reaction to the Vietnam War and its response to the domination of Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara and his top aides in the 1960s. These seminal experiences caused changes in military norms, particularly their willingness to acquire and use political knowledge and expertise
