About the Book

Decades before the phrase “military industrial complex” entered the American lexicon, militarism was debated in every presidential election from World War I to the eve of the Great Depression. During this time, citizens worked to limit military influence on politics and society. This book relates the often-overlooked history of efforts by organizations like the American Union against Militarism and the Committee on Militarism in Education. It explores questions many anti-militarists had about national security policy, such as, “Who is our enemy?” and “How will our forces protect us?”
