The Pathology of Power
The Pathology of Power
By Norman Cousins
Norton, 1987, 214 pp

Mr. Cousins, for the last decade a professor of humanities at the UCLA Medical School, writes with passionate indignation over what he sees as the mad, immoral domination of the military-industrial-technological complex over American life. The best parts of the book are philosophical, the least interesting retell the familiar story of various extravagant and ineffective weapons.
