About this book

The contributions to this anthology in honor of the late military sociologist Jürgen Kuhlmann focus on the soldier and his relations towards the armed forces and towards society. This individual - organization and individual - society nexus is explored from different angles by looking at different national and international contexts. The chapters to this volume thus help the academic as well as the practitioner and the interested reader to better understand the dynamics and the critical issues in this soldier - military - society triangle.
