Warriors and Citizens

Editors: Kori N. Schake, James Mattis
ISBN: 978-0-8179-1934-4

A diverse group of contributors offer perspectives on whether and how public attitudes about the military have changed during fifteen years at war. They analyze extensive polling information to identify disparities between the military and the general public and explore, among other things, whether some of these could in time erode important elements of America’s beneficial civil-military relationship.

State of Disrepair

Author: Kori N. Schake
ISBN: 978-0-8179-1454-7

Kori Schake shows how the deficiencies in focus, education, and programmatic proficiency impede the work of the State Department and suggests how investing in those areas could make the agency significantly more successful at building stable and prosperous democratic governments around the world. She explains why, instead of burdening the US military with yet another inherently civilian function, work should focus on bringing those agencies of the government whose job it is to provide development assistance up to the standard of success that our military has achieved. Schake presents a vision of what a successful State Department should look like and seeks to build support for creating it—a State Department that makes possible the projection of US civilian power as well as US military force.
