State vs Defence: The Battle to Define America's Empire by Stephen Glain

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.

State vs Defence Reviews


"In crisp, authoritative writing, the author sets down some scathing portraits, from MacArthur to Rumsfeld, and in a powerful conclusion, exposes the disequilibrium between the U.S. civilian versus military resources throughout the world and the continued "appeasement" by President Obama to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. A work of smoldering focus and marshaled evidence."--"Kirkus Reviews""Stephen Glain has written and important and thought-provoking book on the growing militarizing of our foreign policy. It is a hot issue that is getting a great deal of attention in Washington. Steve has done a masterful job of researching ths subject and presenting a compelling case. "State vs. Defense" is a must-read for all those developing our foreign policy and for those who are interested in this critical issue."--Gen. Anthony C. Zinni, USMC (Retired)"The United States remains committed to a mindless pursuit of military supresmacy, regardless of cost or consequences. Stephen Glain has got the goods on the militarists who spooked and stampeded the American pople into supporting this bizarre enterprise. His is an urgently important tale, vividly told."--Andrew J. Bacevich, author of" Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War""Stephen Glain's "State vs. Defense" enters the battle as a battering ram at the Pentagon's gates."--"The Wall Street Journal"
