Summary

In a time of war, when the need for military personnel is greatest, do restrictions on women soldiers still make sense? Proponents of the existing policies say that war is not the time to engage in social experiments that could impact unit cohesion and morale. But opponents question how we justify our fight to maintain a free and open society while denying some the right to defend those freedoms. Do such restrictions have legitimate aims or are they based on outdated stereotypes? Women in the Military explores these and other related questions in this timely and thought-provoking debate.

Specifications

Full-color and black-and-white photographs. Elements of the argument. Appendix. Resources. Sidebars. Notes. Index.
