Summary

The Pentagon works with Hollywood to develop new robot weapons systems, and encourages Hollywood to glorify and sanitise military violence. The military works with computer manufacturers to develop more efficient ways of killing, and food companies are drawn into research on meals and drugs that will make soldiers stay awake for longer, be more alert and hyped up. This is the new, high-tech military-industrial complex. Nick Turse draws this strange, frightening world-within-the-world into the light.
