Captives of the Cold War Economy: The Struggle for Defense Conversion in American Communities

Synopsis

In 1989 the Cold War ended, but America's Cold War economy did not end with it. Accordino examines how economic interests and powerful political forces in the federal government and in communities have kept the country from converting to a peacetime economy, and he identifies groups and interests that are working to make a peace economy possible in the United States.
