Military-Industrial Complex

A non fiction book by

The military-industrial complex (MIC) consists of government defense agencies, government policy agencies, government oversight agencies, their counterparts in the armed services, a nationwide network of academic and military defense labs, the US Congress, and defense contractors large and small, domestic and international.

Military-Industrial Complex is an in-depth narrative of the origins and history of the MIC, and a cogent analysis of its past, present and future.

From the close of WW II, to the perilous zenith of Cold War superpower confrontation across nuclear battle lines, to the Shock and Awe campaign that marked the commencement of the War in Iraq, and far beyond into the war zones and strategic challenges of potential new conflicts with North Korea and Iran, to the digital battlefields of a distant tomorrow, David Alexander's Military-Industrial Complex brings the reader into the inner sanctum of policy and war in pages that only the acclaimed author of Tomorrow's Soldier, Stealth Warfare and The Building: A Biography of the Pentagon, could have written.

So far no book has attempted to do what President Eisenhower urged on the nation in his famous farewell speech: comprehend the scope and the relevance of the military-industrial complex to virtually every sphere of military and civilian life.

David Alexander's brilliant and epochal work has finally closed that gap in comprehension with some of the most gripping yet most informative prose on the subject of defense ever written.
