 The Architecture of Identity
Institutions are the persistent structures of social life: social roles, legal systems, linguistic forms, technical standards, and all of the other components of the playing field upon which human relationships are conducted in a given society (Commons 1924, Goodin 1996, March and Olsen 1989, North 1990, Powell and DiMaggio 1991).
Because of this, the institutional mechanisms of identification that we actually have in 1998 fall somewhere between the centralized and decentralized extremes, and their lack of robustness can be understood precisely in terms of the haphazard and accidental nature of this compromise.
To the extent that market institutions are embodied in electronic commerce technologies, any intervention that hopes to influence the direction of those technologies needs to be timed correctly; once a standard is entrenched in market institutions, it may be for all practical purposes irreversible.

Some of the book’s major themes are the dynamic interrelationship of American military, social, and political institutions, the interplay between regulars and part-time citizen soldiers, the gradual professionalization of military institutions, and the impact of industrial and technological developments on military affairs.
For the serving soldier, it provides a concise overview, without excessive and confusing detail, of the evolution of the military institution of which he is a part, in the context of the history of western civilization.
Especially today, as the military officer again becomes a distinct minority in a society largely divorced from soldierly concerns, he or she can profit from understanding that this is not a new development and observing how their counterparts in the past attempted, with varying success, to deal with it.
