America's Viceroys: The Military and U.S. Foreign Policy
Derek S. Reveron
Palgrave Macmillan, Jul 2, 2004 - Political Science - 214 pages
With the US armed forces playing an ever increasing central role in American foreign policy, surprisingly little attention has been paid to the role of regional Commanders-in-Chief (CINCs) in both implementing and shaping relations with various countries. Wielding tremendous power and substantial resources, both military and economic, these officers are also diplomats, advisors, and intermediaries between other countries and the Washington policy process. This book explores the role these military commanders play in contemporary U.S. foreign policy.
