Military Culture Series

FIU’s Jack D. Gordon Institute for Public Policy and Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center have launched a new series examining the cultures of militaries across Latin America and the Caribbean. Building on Brian Fonseca and Eduardo A. Gamarra’s edited volume titled Culture and National Security in the Americas (Lexington Books, 2017) featuring top scholars in the field, the ongoing military culture series examines internal and external factors that shape contemporary institutional identities. Scholars from around the hemisphere have joined FIU in assessing the impact of history, culture, politics, economics, and geography in shaping the dominant values, attitudes, and behaviors of military institutions today.
