About the Author :

Samuel E. Finer (1915-1993) was professor of government at Manchester University and Gladstone Professor of Government and Public Administration at Oxford University. His published works include the monumental The History of Government from the Earliest Times.



Jay Stanley, professor of sociology at Towson University, is a member of the advisory council of the Inter-University Seminar on Armed Forces and Society, and on the board of editors of its journal Armed Forces & Society. He is the editor of Essays on the Garrison State, and co-editor of Challenges in Military Health Care, both published by Transaction.

Review :

The Man on Horseback is ‘old school’ in ‘new clothes.’ In the current era of renewed interest in civil-military relations, it is important to revisit previous work on this important topic. Finer’s thesis is dynamic and raises a much needed ruckus in the civil-military debate....Indeed, the interdisciplinary nature and comparative features of  The Man on Horseback  makes it especially exciting and timely.”

Morten G. Ender, United States Military Academy



“Stanley’s masterful introduction paints a lively portrait of Finer’s life and work and instructs us all on the increasing relevance of Finer’s arguments. It will shake the complacency of those who do not know or cannot say when, why, and how militaries intervene in the politics of countries they are supposed to defend.”

James Burke, Texas A&M University
