A Critique Of Civilian Defence, Nick Bowen

Theses and Dissertations

Civilian defence is an alternative to military defence. In the light of some claims that military defence is inadequately equipped to defend a nation-state, methods of alternative defence are thought to be needed. Civilian defence seeks to divest the state of a defence system which is an economic liability and which may not be able to perform its function when required, as happened to the Czechoslovakian armed forces.
