Punishment or Obligation?
Jacobs, James B.
Society, v18 n3 p54-57 Mar-Apr 1981
The all-volunteer armed force system is less socially representative than the mixed conscription/voluntarism system of the pre-Vietnam War period. Ideological and political factors block a return to conscription, though strategic and monetary factors point to the failure of the all-volunteer force. (Author/GC)
