The Defense Industry

By Jacques S. Gansler
MIT Press, 1980
346 pp. $19.95

Written by a former Defense Department official with extensive experience in the defense industry, this book gives a knowledgeable insight into the "military-industrial complex." There is none of the polemic so often found in writing on this subject. Focusing on the post-Vietnam period, the author concludes that the industrial base of defense procurement has become economically inefficient and unresponsive to a potential military emergency.
