- By Thomas E. RicksThomas E. Ricks covered the U.S. military from 1991 to 2008 for the Wall Street Journal and then the Washington Post. He can be reached at email@example.com.
In his new book on the culture, politics and strategy of Sparta, Paul Rahe states, “The military revolution under way in the eighth and early in the seventh century [BC] had profound moral implications.”
That sentence made me wonder: Do all military revolutions have a moral or political dimension? I bet they do.
Does anyone know of a book that studies that question? If not, the subject would make a good dissertation subject for someone with a broad mind inclined to analogy and synthesis.
