Boulder, Colo.: Westview Press, []. Civil-military relations in communist systems. [Dale R Herspring; Iván Völgyes;] -- This book represents the first attempt to deal with the problem of how to conceptualize the civil-military relations of communist systems within a common intellectual framework.

Without providing clear answers either as to theory or to practice, this book takes us further toward an understanding of the subject than earlier ones, not least because of the comparative look at the Soviet Union, some of its Warsaw Pact allies, Yugoslavia, and China.

Civil-military relations in Communist systems are crucial for our understanding of the military’s role and function in such political environments. Examining military establishments in democratic polities, while paying little attention to the existing political structure might well be a fruitful by: 5.

The event inspired him to explore the civil–military relations in a liberal democratic society. Collectively these countries illustrate the way in which the interaction of broadly similar postcommunist challenges and distinct national contexts have combined to produce a wide variety of different patterns of civil-military relations.

Refuting the work of scholars such as Samuel P. Huntington and Michael C. Desch, Civil-Military Relations and Shared Responsibility approaches civil-military relations from a new angle, military culture, arguing that the optimal form of civil-military relations is. Modern studies of civil--military relations recognise that the military is separate from civil society, with its own norms and values, principles of organization, and regulations.

Key issues of concern include the means by which – and the extent to which – the civil power controls the military; and also the ways in which military values and Cited by: 1.

Both countries engage themselves with CMR through a different institutional mechanism, for instance, the Political Commissioner System (PCS), appointed directly by the party or the government.Research on civil-military relations in communist societies has traditionally focussed on single nations and has been largely descriptive (e.g., Kolkowicz, ).
