    Holmqvist and Avant evaluate the underlying concept behind private security. In complex societies, arguably, stable political parties not only define political culture, but also facilitate governance. Analysing issues of command and control of military-controlled commercial ventures in China and the efficiency of the sector, Mulvenon limited himself to a case study The book did not evaluate the opportunity costs of Milbus or look profoundly at the theoretical aspects of military capital. It is considered vital to provide for the welfare of armed forces personnel whose typical remuneration, all over the world, is less than the private sector norm. Each military leader, for his own survival and legitimacyhas to reward the senior echelons of the military to ensure their allegiance and establish unity of command in the forces.

    Despite its promises and claims to restore democracy, Pakistan's military government, installed in Octoberis not different from the previous military regimes in terms of not allowing civilian institutions to strengthen. Forcing the society to take a certain direction or do the bidding of the powerful could push the common people, or a select group of people, in opposite and competing directions. It is impossible to assess the financial burden of Milbus on a national economy without emphasizing the significance of the military as a fraternity. Governments feel obligated to provide extra cash or resources for people who guard the frontiers of the state. I am indebted to Rabia Saleem, Junaid Ahmed, Rauf and Shehzad for providing valuable support in search of the necessary materials. One political outcome of the War was the marginalisation of the Muslims by the British.

    For example, the Pakistani military was considered weaker relative to the Indian capacity to project power, but it is equally likely that the military was stronger and more coherent an institution relative to the political institutions in Pakistan. While direct means of imposing hegemony involve the military dominating key administrative and political positions in the state and society, indirect methods relate to encouraging the perception that the armed forces have the panacea for all ills of the nation. Such legal provisions hamper the government and the Auditor-General's Department from taking any action if and when they find an irregularity in accounts or observe an unauthorized flow of the funds. If politics is about negotiation, conciliation, settlement and compromise, all political processes are likely to reflect an unequal relationship.

It is also important to emphasize that in most cases the rewards are limited to the officer cadre rather than being evenly distributed among the rank and file, The top echelons of the armed forces who are the main beneficiaries of Milbus justify the economic dividends as welfare provided to the military for their services rendered to the state.
