This is a book about the impact of high tech defense production on individuals, families, and communities. It analyzes the restructuring of an American industry around high tech defense production, and the effect of this restructuring on employment opportunities and on the redistribution of profits. The author is concerned with the construction of corporate hegemony which she defines in Gramscian terms as leadership by large corporations, establishing a pattern for industrial organization. Focusing on regional economic history and corporate policy, Dr. Nash identifies the interconnected issues that bear on the relationship between industrial transformation and social life, on the restructuring of the American economy, and the consequences of militarization and commercialization on the family and community.
