The Pentagon Wars: Reformers Challenge the Old Guard
From the late 1960s through the mid-1980s, a small band of military activists waged war against corruption in the Pentagon, challenging a system they believed squandered the public's money and trust. This book examines that movement and its proponents and describes how the system responded to their criticisms and efforts to change accepted practices and entrenched ways of thinking.
