Breakfast and Lecture With Author Melvin A. Goodman
Author Melvin Goodman Talks About His Book National Insecurity
Enjoy an included continental breakfast and compelling discussion as author and former CIA analyst Melvin Goodman discusses his latest book, National Insecurity: The Cost of American Militarism
, which was just released in March. Goodman, who taught at the National War College for 18 years, is one of a growing number of critics of rising U.S. military spending, policy and culture -- especially at a time when more and more Americans are falling into poverty and the global economy is spiraling downward. Goodman shares what he thinks are the consequences of this trend, and what can be done.
