My primary research interests today are: (1) the United States counterinsurgency experience; (2) relationships between police and military forces in various countries and the current and possible overlaps between their roles. A literature about police and military overlaps is developing, but there is still much to be said about historical patterns and emerging trends; (3) aspects of the professionalization of United States military officers.
