Editorial Reviews

Parameters
Another gem from the Jaguar series. . . . Professor RodrÌguez's introductory essay is definitive and should be incorporated into a general book of readings on the region.
Thomas M. Davies
A superb, carefully crafted, and neatly balanced collection of seminal articles on civil-military relations in Latin America. It will be useful in any course on Latin American history and politics.
Brian Loveman
The editor's excellent introduction sensitively frames this outstanding collection of articles that treats the Latin American military from colonial times to the 1990s. Rodrìguez emphasizes both internal and external miitary missions, rightly focusing on the international context for development of the Latin American militaries. . . . A valuable text.
