Fifty years after President Dwight Eisenhower warned of “the acquisition of undue influence … by the military-industrial complex,” the importance and power of the military and related industries in the U.S. economy and government grows apace. William Hartung, director of the Arms and Security Initiative of the New America Foundation, discusses his new book, Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex, with Blanche Wiesen Cook, professor of history at John Jay College, and journalists James Ledbetter and Sharon Weinberger.
