From the PublisherWilliam Greider author of Who Will Tell The People and One World, Ready Or Not Gary Hart prods us to think clearly about what national defense means without the Cold War, and he offers a powerful framework for reordering the U.S. military. His real subject is not weaponry but democracy, and he offers a solution that is both practical and grounded in American values and tradition. If Americans fail to engage the questions he raises, the gravest threat to our long-term security may not be foreign.
Major General Edward J. Philbin, U.S.A.F. (RET.) Executive Director, National Guard Association of the United States Gary Hart asks the most important and contentious military-political question facing the nation since the outbreak of World War II: will the nation continue to support an anomalous Cold War military structure indefinitely into the twenty-first century — well after its mission has ended — or will it return to its historic reliance on trained, organized, and equipped citizen-soldiers? The Minuteman is must reading, not only for decision makers and opinion molders but for every citizen.
