The New Nuclear Danger: George W. Bush's Military-Industrial Complex

by

The New Nuclear Danger:  George W. Bush's Military-Industrial Complex Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This revised edition includes a new introduction that outlines the costs of operation Iraqi Freedom, details the companies profiting from the war and subsequent reconstruction, and chronicles the rampant conflicts of interest among members of the Bush administration who also have a financial stake in weapons manufacturing. After eight printings in the original edition, The New Nuclear Danger remains a singularly persuasive antidote to war and its horrific costs.
