About this title


The description for this book, Wild Blue Yonder: Money, Politics, and the B-1 Bomber, will be forthcoming.

From Publishers Weekly:

Written by a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, this is a detailed expose of the disorderly and wasteful process that comprises U.S. defense decision-making. Kotz shows that political and economic factors are at least as important in major defense decisions as military analysis, and that the military services, members of Congress, presidential administrations and defense industries reciprocate support for each others' projects. Little of this is startling news, but Kotz provides a wealth of unknown specifics. The main focus is the nearly 30-year struggle of the Air Force for a new strategic bomber, the B-1, a struggle won during the Nixon administration and only brought to controversial fruition under Reagan. Kotz views our defense process as "spinning madly out of control." In his call for reform, he argues that military officers should be kept out of "the corrupting practices of defense politics."
