"Is the United States defense establishment today well run? To ask that question is to provoke a set of additional Queries. For example, are resources allocated efficiently enough, in peacetime, to produce well trained and well equipped combat units? In wartime, will the command arrangements currently in force be sufficient to provide for the combined arms approach that modern battles require? Are the military properly organized so as to give timely and integrated advice to their civilian superiors? Have the civilians in the defense establishment usurped the traditional prerogatives of the military? Is there a process in place that produces a ciear-cut, rational strategy to govern the use of force? Are decisions on programs and force structures clearly related to strategy? In its structure and operation, how does the American defense establishment compare to those of other nations? Is it better or more poorly managed? Are there lessons for improvement that can be derived from a study of how other nations manage their defense establishments? Finally, if some changes in structure and procedure are necessary, what are the alternatives, and the costs and benefits of each? These are the range of subjects to which the authors in this volume address themselves." (from the Introduction by Robert J. Art).

Index. 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The upward course of industry, trade, and finance in the eighteenth century was broken by a number of depressions. Some of these may be attributed to failure of the harvests or misfortunes arising from war, but others were the product of forces of a more strictly economic nature. The chronological account of the oscillations of prosperity and depression offered in this book is based on statistical material and diaries and letters of the period. It has relevance to political as well as social history; and economists may find interest in the demonstration that what was later to be known as the trade cycle has an ancestry longer than some had supposed. The book is an expansion of the Ford Lectures given bv the autiior in 1953." (from the dj). Contents: 1. The Elements. 2. The Influence of the Harvests. 3. War, Trade, and Finance. 4.
