9780674725263: Torpedo: Inventing the Military-Industrial Complex in the United States and Great Britain

In a bold reappraisal, Katherine Epstein uncovers the origins of the "military-industrial complex" not in the Cold War but in the decades before WWI, as the United States and Great Britain struggled to perfect a crucial new weapon: the self-propelled torpedo. Torpedo sparked intellectual property battles that reshaped national security law.

Review:

Epstein shows how technical details help elucidate history; her approach and results align well with recent research on other weapons. Epstein presents a nuanced understanding of weapons development and acquisition.--Hermione Giffard"History Today" (10/01/2014)
