In the tradition of The Wise Men, The Best and the Brightest, Legacy of Ashes, and The Dead Hand, State vs. Defense explores how and why American leaders succumbed to the sirens of militarism, how the republic has been lost to an empire, and how "the military-industrial complex" that Eisenhower so famously forewarned has set us on a stark path of financial peril. About the Author Stephan Glain has been a journalist for twenty years. He spent four years in Hong Kong writing for the local South China Morning Post before joining the Wall Street Journal in 1991 with stints in Seoul, Tel Aviv, and Amman. His book, Mullahs, Merchants, and Militants, was named the best book of 2004 by The Globalist. His articles on US foreign policy, East Asia, and the Arab world have appeared in The New Republic, Atlantic Monthly, The Nation, Financial Times, and Newsweek.
