He also reveals how the military has become a powerful bureaucratic interest group very much like others in Washington - increasingly politicized, media-savvy, and as much accountable to Congress as to the commander-in-chief." "Ultimately, The Pentagon and the Presidency illuminates how our leaders devise strategies for dealing with threats to our national security - and how the success of that process depends so much upon who's in charge and how that person is perceived by our military commanders."--Jacket." ;
