The Soldier and the State; The Theory and Politics of Civil-Military Relations. Samuel P. Huntington.
New York: A Caravelle Edition, Vintage Books, A Division of Random House, 1957. Presumed First Printing thus. Trade paperback. xiii, [3], 534, [10] pages. Notes. Index. Cover has some wear and soiling. Some page discoloration. The Soldier and the State: The Theory and Politics of Civil-Military Relations is a 1957 book written by political scientist Samuel P. Huntington. 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. Edward M. Coffman has written that "[a]nyone seriously interested in American military history has to come to terms with Samuel P. Huntington's The Soldier and the State." n the first chapter Huntington defines qualities of a profession, argues the officer corps conforms to this definition. Specifically, the officer corps display specialized knowledge in the management of violence, maintains a monopoly on education and advancement in their field, and have an overarching responsibility to the society they serve and thus do not 'compete' in the open market. Huntington argues this 'professional ethic' differentiates 'officers' from amateur groups engaged in violence (reservists, mercenaries, technical specialists, etc.). In the case of the officer corps, officers are entrusted with evaluating the security of the state and providing expert advice to its leaders, and society in turn must afford a measure of deference to their professional expertise and institutions.
