Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is an excellent addition to the spate of literature on the defense process. Stubbing worked for the Budget Bureau for 20 years, and his subtitle is most apt. He analyzes how the U.S. assesses the Soviet threat (badly, he says), how we decide on defense expenses (by guesswork), how money is actually spent (by service rivalry), and he takes a look at the role of recent Secretaries of Defense (some good, some bad, all with less authority than most citizens imagine). In the best interest of the American people, all Defense Department employees should be required to read this book. Highly recommended for most libraries. Gerald N. Sandvick, Associate Dean, North Hennepin Community Coll., Brooklyn Park, Minn.
