The Changing Dynamics of U. S. Defense Spending


Probing beneath the stable surface of the political and economic environment for defense spending, this book reveals pressures for change and conflict in Congress, the news media, and the defense industry. It shows how fewer Congressional districts are getting larger shares of the Pentagon pie and questions whether new weapons help preserve the defense industry.
