A war correspondent has an unrivalled opportunity of watching the unfolding of military events. He is at hand to hear the purpose of the commander and to see, in the days which follow, the regiments and the men who fulfil it. The author has achieved a balance of vivid narrative and reasoned criticism which does justice to his great theme. This is an exceptional and moving story of a celebrated campaign and of the men who fought it, and a permanent historical record. Nice and clean internally and externally.

Economics of Defence, Kennedy, Gavin
4 Kennedy, Gavin Economics of Defence
London Faber 1975 0571107400 / 9780571107407 First Edition / First Impression Hardcover Near Fine Near Fine Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Unclipped dustwrapper. No marks or inscriptions. Silver lettering to spine. Of all the subjects to which economics would have a natural application, it is remarkable that defence has been neglected almost entirely, especially in Britain. Yet the amount spent worldwide on preparations for war are not trivial. They reached $200 billion in 1973. This book is the first British study of defence written by an economist for many years. It looks at the ideas of the early economists Adam Smith, David Ricardo and Malthus - and follows the development of these ideas up to the modern Marxists. The work of the special economic advisers to the Pentagon in the nuclear age is also brought before a wider audience on this side of the Atlantic and will assist constructive and critical assessments of the relevance of defence spending and planning in Britain. The author considers the controversial issues of defence is a public good, the burden or prop theses, functional costing, weapon selection, regional and employment gains from defence and the benefits and costs of military aid. Why not pushing any particular view on defence, Dr Kennedy is pessimistic about the future possibilities of general and complete disarmament. He concludes it is likely to take a nuclear holocaust to bring this about unless a minor accident frightens governments into finding alternative means of settling their differences. Nice and clean internally and externally. First edition means first edition, first printing unless otherwise clearly stated.
