Social Representation in the U.S. Military
Robert D. Reischauer (pf); Richard L. Fernandez (au)
Not all segments of society are equally represented in today’s U.S. military (1989), nor have they been at any time in the nation’s history. Concern has often been expressed over the under- or overrepresentation of specific racial groups, or over the alleged “economic conscription” into the military of those to whom society offers few alternatives. Issues of social representation figured prominently in the debate over ending the draft, & they have arisen in discussions about resuming conscription or introducing some form of national service. Here is a comprehensive look at the composition of today’s forces in terms both of demographic characteristics & of socioeconomic backgrounds. Examines the compositional changes that have taken place during the 1980s.
