Summary
In a bold reappraisal, Katherine Epstein uncovers the origins of the "military-industrial complex" not in the Cold War but in the decades before WWI, as the United States and Great Britain struggled to perfect a crucial new weapon: the self-propelled torpedo. Torpedo R & D sparked intellectual property battles that reshaped national security law
