"After reading Carol Burke, the U.S. Naval Academy and its counterparts throughout the military will never look-or sound-the same."
Review by: Mark Miller, author of The Bush Dyslexicon - January 1, 2005
"Razor-sharp in its analysis, and harrowingly well informed, Burke's important book is essential for those concerned with our military, democracy, and culture."

"Burke's work is an eminently readable, eye-opening, yet thoroughly grounded scholarly tour-de-force . . . [Its] importance . . . and its contribution to the study of women and war cannot be overemphasized."

"Carol Burke wasn't at all surprised to learn that soldiers ritualistically tortured Iraqi prisoners and documented their deeds. Her research, done long before the Abu Ghraib news broke, shows that these types of practices are widespread in military cultures around the globe."
