The Military-Industrial Complex

Eisenhower's Warning Three Decades Later


Gregg B. Walker, David A. Bella and Steven J. Sprecher

Contents: This book includes thirteen essays that address various aspects of the United States «Military-Industrial Complex» and President Dwight D. Eisenhower's farewell warning about that complex. The essays are organized according to a variety of «perspectives»: contemporary, economic and historical, and rhetorical and psychological. The book concludes with an essay that argues for considering Eisenhower's farewell warning as a «new paradigm» for thinking about the relationships between the citizenry, government, and industry.
