In the post-Cold War era, militaries across the world are engaged
in an ongoing redefinition of their roles, organisation and
financing. This adaptation is challenging often long-standing
relations between armed forces and the societies they serve.
Nowhere is this more striking than across the whole of Europe, a
continent that was divided into opposing camps for much of the
post-1945 period. This book offers an innovative conceptual
framework to critically evaluate contemporary civil-military
relations across the continent of Europe. It analyses 8 key issues
in armed forces and society relations, to explore the scale and
intensity of these changes. In doing so it highlights the major
challenges of contemporary civil-military relations and takes issue
with the conventional wisdom that a postmodern military has emerged
in Europe. Anthony Forster suggests that 15 years after the end of
the Cold War militaries across Europe are surprisingly resilient in
terms of their modernist foundations, structure and purposes.
