What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Hunter's important and exemplary study stands as a model of organization, analysis, and clarity.—Choice



A significant contribution to the literature on post-transition civil-military relations. Hunter convincingly challenges the conventional wisdom that military tutelage in new democracies will necessarily continue or get worse. Brazil is an important example of declining military prerogatives, resulting from the competitive logic of democratic politics, even in the absence of strong civilian institutions.—J. Samuel Fitch, University of Colorado



The best new book on Latin American civil-military relations. . . . Hunter convincingly shows [that] the political power of the Brazilian military has eroded significantly since civilian government was reestablished.—Latin American Research Review
