My colleagues and I in the Center for Civil–Military Relations (CCMR) have followed the time-honored social scientific method by refining our approach to the analysis of civil–military relations through debate with other recognized experts in the field. All those involved in the debate have empirical bases for their ideas, which are further honed through submitting them in writing for evaluation, critique, and finally publication. The main developments in our thinking, which, as this volume documents, continues to evolve, are captured in the two articles listed in Notes 2 and 3 to this chapter. There are also another three articles that document the evolution of our thinking, and they are listed in Notes 4, 5, and 6 to this chapter. 1
