Abstract : In 1959 Castro dismantled the Cuban Army and established from the bottom up a revolutionary army and militia to support the new government. For at least 20 years the army and the party thought as one. Beginning in 1980, cracks in the system began to develop when Castro changed the military's doctrine and organization. Problems continue today with the military seeking a viable mission in a time of severe economic constraint. Huntington, Janowitz and Moskos have written a great deal on civil-military relation theories. Applying these theories to Cuba can provide us a better understanding of Cuban civil-military relations the last 38 years and insights into future relations.
