Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"The book makes a strong and consistent case for significant reductions in defense spending, and reviews what will have to happen to make it possible in the least disruptive way. The coverage is broad and informative, ranging from foreign policy to industrial policy and environmental concerns." --Riddell, Smith College

"This book details what cannot be left to the 'free market' and what must be dealt with by deliberate, explicit policy." --Melman, Columbia University

With the end of the Cold War and the extraordinary military competition that characterized it, the meaning of national security is being redefined. This book participates in that task by proposing a new, demilitarized foreign policy based on collective security, and an industrial policy capable of shifting the country's major resources from military purposes to the revitalization of the economy. This reduction in military production will also make possible the reversal of the environmental legacy of the Cold War, analyzed at length here.
