Transcript of Dictatorships
Pros and Cons
A Military Dictatorship is a form of government where in the political power resides with the military. It is similar but not identical to a Stratocracy, a state ruled directly by the military. Like any dictatorship, a military dictatorship may be official or unofficial, and as a result may not actually qualify as Stratocratic. Mixed forms also exist, where the military exerts a very strong influence without being entirely dominant.
