Product description


"This is a deeply disturbing audit of the Pentagon's influence on American life, especially its subtle conscription of popular imagination and entertainment technology. If Nick Turse is right, the 'Matrix' may be just around the corner."--Mike Davis, author of "Buda's Wagon: A Brief History of the Car Bomb""When President Eisenhower warned of the dangers to democracy posed by the military-industrial complex, he had no idea how far it would penetrate into every aspect of our everyday lives. In impressive detail, Nick Turse shows how the military is now tied to everything from your morning cup of Starbucks to the video games your kids play before turning in for the night. It's not just political anymore--it's personal. Turse sounds the alarm bell about the militarization of everyday life. Now it's up to us to do something about it."--Bill Hartung, author of "How Much Are You Making on the War Daddy?""Nick Turse's searing, investigative journalism reveals just how deeply embedded

Book Description
