World Policy Institute, Nation Books and the Graduate Program in International Affairs and the Global Studies Program at The New School present:

The Military-Industrial Complex Revisited:
Eisenhower’s Warning at 50

Monday, February 28
7 PM
The New School

(This event was originally scheduled for January 26; please note the new date and venue.)

In his farewell address, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned of “the acquisition of undue influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.” Fifty years later, the military budget is at its highest levels since World War II, and companies like Boeing and Lockheed Martin are receiving record levels of Pentagon contracts. Has anything changed since Eisenhower sounded the alarm?

Join William Hartung, director of the Arms and Security Initiative, New America Foundation; and journalists Nathan Hodge, author of Armed Humanitarians and a staff reporter for the Wall Street Journal; James Ledbetter, author of Unwarranted Influence: Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex; and Sharon Weinberger for a panel discussion marking the release of William Hartung’ s new book, Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex (Nation Books, January 2011).
