KIRKUS REVIEW

Mr. Raymond's daily business is to report on our military-industrial complex for the New York Times. He covers with considerable journalistic skill civil defense, the draft, the defense establishment's present and potential effects on education and on the whole economy arising from too great a dependence on defense budget monies, the multifarious lobbies, the ominous political overtones, and the question of over-ill. He sees all the dangers and explains each without minimizing or exaggerating any. The greatest of them, in his opinion, is that we will not watch the technocrat and bureaucrat as we do the man in uniform. He is the first to admit that there are more comprehensive and scholarly books available on the subject, but there are few that can touch Mr. Raymond's in its lucid objectivity.
