Abstract
The report discusses issues relating to the organization of the Canadian Armed Forces in the light of the ever changing Canadian (and world) social structure. The origins and development of modern industrial society are examined as well as the military social organization. Implications of military effectiveness are examined in the light of the general social processes and assumptions. The problem of commitment to military roles is discussed in an era of increasing "civilianization". The author concludes that there is a continuing requirement for a professional core of trained and equipped military personnel ready to carry out the limited spectrum of military activities considered in relation to the goals of Canadian society while retaining a measure of distinctiveness from civilian occupational roles and careers.
