Revisiting the Military-Industrial Complex

Andrew J. Bacevich has written a brilliant piece on the Military-Industrial Complex, setting Eisenhower’s famous Farewell Address into a broader perspective on “permanent war.”

Bacevich, a Professor of History at Boston University, has emerged as one of the most prominent voices for significant reform of military policies and budgets in the United States. He has also called for a thorough reconsideration of military strategies in Iraq and Afghanistan, advocating ending the counter-insurgency approach to warfare in those conflicts.

Read Bacevich’s article in The Atlantic (January/February 2011).
