As I read this book, I was reminded of two related books by very different authors, William Greider's "Fortress America" and Andrew Bacevich's "The New American Militarism". Maddow cites the latter in her end notes but her book adds a historical, Constitutional dimension to Greider's account of the military-industrial complex and Bacevich's social, oor sociological, history. As I read, I became increasingly moved to step up my engagement with efforts to reduce our military budget and pare back the power of the Presidency. A book that moves one to act, what more need be said?
