Clarke book

GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN,  Germany (Nov. 12, 2014) - Dr. John L. Clarke, director of the Program on Civil Security at the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies, gives  a signed copy of his latest book to Marshall Center Director U.S. Army Lt. Gen (Ret.) Keith Dayton Oct. 30 here.  Titled What Should Armies Do?  Armed Forces and Civil Security, this is Clarke’s third book on this subject.  It focuses on the growing role of armed forces in domestic contingencies, such as disaster relief, law enforcement and providing essential services.  In an era of declining budgets, policy makers in Europe and North America are looking increasingly to their armed forces to carry out a growing range of non-military tasks inside their borders.  Clarke’s book provides a detailed description of these missions and tasks and provides answers to the question of what roles are and are not appropriate for armed forces at home.  For more photos, visit the Marshall Center Photo Gallery.
