This is a succinct comparative study of civilian militias, covering a vast amount of material frequently overlooked in conventional military history. Not only examines American, European, Asian, and Middle East militias, but also discusses the traditions of political thinking about the role of citizen soldiers as distinct from professional or mercenary military class.
