- Political Control over the Use of Force: A Clausewitzian Perspective. Authored by Lieutenant Colonel Suzanne C. Nielsen.
- The author addresses the issues regarding the ideal relationship between the commander and the statesman in time of war and the balance between political control and military operational expertise by examining what Carl von Clausewitz has to say about civil- military relations and the use of force. She looks in depth at Clausewitz s arguments, reviews his theoretical approach, and discusses four key implications of the basic idea that political purposes govern war.
