The Soldier and the State: The Theory and Politics of Civil-Military Relations is a 1957 book written by political scientist Samuel P. Huntington.

The Soldier and the State: The Theory and Politics of Civil-Military Relations is a 1957 book written by political scientist Samuel P. In the book, Huntington advances the theory of objective civilian control, according to which the optimal means of asserting control over the armed forces is to professionalize them. This is in contrast to subjective control, which involves placing legal and institutional restrictions on the military's autonomy.

Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them.

Huntington provides some fantastic insights in The Soldier and the State. While overly simple today, the Soldier and the State was a defining book of theory and methodology within the topic of civil-military relationships. That said, you've got to really want to read this book to make it through many of the dry arduous sections. I believe the sum of the fantastic insights is well worth the time invested.

Just an incredible book. So comprehensive and clearly written. You may not agree with (any)everything Huntington says, but you'll enjoy how he walks you through the subject.

These writings also dispel a lot of myths civilian people have concerning the military. I have yet to read a better explanation of this subject in any other source. Brian

For anyone interested in military research, this is a must have ... or must have access to. This book (as well as Janowitz: Professional Soldier) continues to be heavily referenced in the literature. It is definately a theory based book - not an easy read at times.

Too much detail on committees, not enough on events.
Great if you are studying gov/politics.
