Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Jeffrey St. Clair is the Seymour Hersh of environmental journalism.”—Josh Frank

From the F-22 fighter jet and B-2 bomber to the Stryker tank and Star Wars, Grand Theft Pentagon chronicles how the Pentagon shells out billions to politically wired arms contractors for weapons that don’t work for use against an enemy that no longer exists. St. Clair shows how many of the biggest arms contracts were literally inside jobs, negotiated by Pentagon generals who later went to work for the very same corporations that were awarded the contracts.

The co-founder of Counterpunch and author of Been Brown So Long It Looked Like Green to Me: The Politics of Nature, Jeffrey St. Clair lives in Portland, Oregon.

Synopsis:

An explosive account of how a handful of arms-makers feast at the nearly limitless Pentagon trough.
