The armed forces are central actors in most societies and are involved in many different roles. Amongst other activities, they engage in peace operations, support the police in fighting crime, support civilian authorities in dealing with natural disasters, and fight against terrorists and in internal conflicts. The existing literature on this subject is limited in its discussion of war-fighting and thus does not do justice to this variety of roles. The Routledge Handbook of Civil-Military Relations offers an up-to-date comparative analysis which identifies three essential components in civil-military relations: (1) democratic civilian control; (2) operational effectiveness; and (3) the efficiency of the security institutions. Amalgamating ideas from key thinkers in the field, the book is organized into three main parts: yPart I: Development of the Field of Study; yPart II: Civil-Military Relations in Non-Democratic or Nominally Democratic Countries; yPart III: Civil-Military Relations in Democratic and Democratizing States: Issues and Institutions.SANDF soon began to worry about a growing imbalance between capital equipment and manpower. ... 57 SANDF is now providing security for the countrya#39;s land, maritime, and air borders, and through 2015 will expand its mandate to include the borders with Lesotho, Botswana, and Namibia.58 In ... 60 To date, the SANDF has engaged in kinetic operations only in the form of external peacekeeping.
