America’ s military is uniquely able to save lives and restore order in situations that overwhelm civilian institutions. Yet the U.S. military has also been called in for more coercive duties at home: breaking strikes, quelling riots, and enforcing federal laws in the face of state resistance. Called a “required reading for serious students of national security and responsible citizens alike” by former NSA and CIA General Counsel Elizabeth Rindskopf Parker, Soldiers on the Home Front: The Domestic Role of the American Military, coauthored by Stephen Dycus and William C. Banks, critically assesses the domestic role of the military as it is shaped by law and asks what practices must be established for the crises to come.
