The development of public policies that govern the use of federal military forces in civil disturbances, and the relationships between the federal government and the states in implementing those policies are examined to determine their effectiveness. An historical approach is used, beginning with the early constitutional and legislative origins of policy, tracing the subsequent development and implementation of policy and the inter-action between federal officials and state governors. Particular emphasis is given to the decade of the 1960s and the Detroit riots in 1967. Recommendations concerning techniques of action are outlined. Modified author abstract
