The New Maginot Line - John Connell

Secker & Warburg, 1986, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.

From the cover: “At a time when the Challenger and Chernobyl disasters have cast new light on the fallibility of high technology, Jon Connell attacks the myth that scientists have all the answers. He arouse that the wizards of high-tech cannot attain even their own technical goals, let alone provide durable solutions to what are essentially political problems. He suggests that without a fundamental rethinking of the way our defence establishment does its business, we will end up on the road to bankruptcy, and are likely to become less, not more, secure. The New Maginot Line should be required reading for every student of Western defence, whether in or out of government.”
