About this product
- DescriptionThe Pentagon works with Hollywood to develop new robot weapons systems, and encourages Hollywood to glorify and sanitise military violence. The military works with computer manufacturers to develop more efficient ways of killing, and the products from that collaboration are fed back as cool new kit for the impressionable youth. Food companies are drawn into research on meals and drugs that will make soldiers stay awake for longer, be more alert and hyped up. Western society is becoming militarised in hitherto unimaginable ways. This is the new, high-tech military-industrial complex: it is everywhere and where. Nick Turse draws this strange, frightening world-within-the-world into the light.
- Author BiographyNick Turse is a historian who has written for the Los Angeles Times, The Nation and the Village Voice and many online sites. He is thirty years old.
