Booknews
Some 2,000 entries comprise this reference to the workings, general and particular, of the massive, multi-faceted and ever-evolving military and national security establishment. Including brief definitions of specific terms as well as extended discussions of military concepts and systems, the Encyclopedia details the history, terminology, trends and organization of the defense world. Arkin, director of the Nuclear Information Unit at Greenpeace USA, and co-authors have compiled an abundance of once scattered and classified information--released through the Freedom of Information Act--from US Government documents, military manuals, fact sheets, internal studies, glossaries, and specialized dictionaries.
