The Complex Summary


The Complex: How the Military Invades Our Everyday Lives by Nick Turse

The 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 food companies are drawn into research on meals and drugs that will make soldiers stay awake for longer, be more alert and hyped up. This is the new, high-tech military-industrial complex. Nick Turse draws this strange, frightening world-within-the-world into the light.

The Complex Reviews


"This is a deeply disturbing audit of the Pentagon's influence on American life, especially its subtle conscription of popular imagination and entertainment technology. If Nick Turse is right, the 'Matrix' may be just around the corner."--Mike Davis, author of "Buda's Wagon: A Brief History of the Car Bomb""When President Eisenhower warned of the dangers to democracy posed by the military-industrial complex, he had no idea how far it would penetrate into every aspect of our everyday lives. In impressive detail, Nick Turse shows how the military is now tied to everything from your morning cup of Starbucks to the video games your kids play before turning in for the night. It's not just political anymore--it's personal. Turse sounds the alarm bell about the militarization of everyday life. Now it's up to us to do something about it."--Bill Hartung, author of "How Much Are You Making on the War Daddy?""Nick Turse's searing, investigative journalism reveals just how deeply embedded
