504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 225-277) and 
520    "When President Dwight D. Eisenhower prepared to leave the
       White House in 1961, he did so with an ominous message for
       the American people about the "disastrous rise" of the 
       military-industrial complex. Fifty years later, the 
       complex has morphed into a virtually unstoppable war 
       machine, one that dictates U.S. economic and foreign 
       policy in a direct and substantial way. Based on his 
       experiences as an award-winning Washington-based reporter 
       covering national security, James McCartney presents a 
       compelling history, from the Cold War to present day that 
       shows that the problem is far worse and far more wide-
       reaching than anything Eisenhower could have imagined. Big
       Military has become "too big to fail" and has grown to 
       envelope the nation's political, cultural and intellectual
       institutions. These centers of power and influence, 
       including the now-complicit White House and Congress, have
       a vested interest in preparing and waging unnecessary 
       wars. The authors persuasively argue that not one foreign 
       intervention in the past 50 years has made us or the world
       safer. With additions by Molly Sinclair McCartney, a 
       fellow journalist with 30 years of experience, America's 
       War Machine provides the context for today's national 
       security state and explains what can be done about it"--

520    Explores how years of military-slanted domestic and 
       foreign policy have rendered America a perpetual war 
       machine, identifying the pervasive role of "Big Military"
