Beschreibung:

This authoritative book explores the influential but controversial concept of military professionalism and its role in civil-military relations. Focusing on the evolution of military professionalism in ten key Asian countries, the authors investigate its conception, practice, and consequences. Combining the expertise of military officers and scholars from the region, the study argues that 'old professionalism' is on the rise in Asia as the role of coercion in governance has been reduced and the distribution of power has shifted away from the military in favor of political and civil society.
