Summary

Summary

In this book, Karsten examines the consequences of American military life from the Revolutionary War to the present. Soldiers and Society contains two major sections. A long introduction, containing the author's survey and general conclusions, comprises the first section. The rest of the book is made up of source material--graphs, tables, and first-hand contemporary accounts. Karsten uses statistics extensively for comparative purposes.
