Pentagon Underground

Dina Rasor, Author Crown Publishers $16.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-8129-1249-4
Rasor is the founder of the Project on Military Procurement, a nonpartisan, privately funded group that investigates Pentagon waste. Using information leaked by Defense Department insiders, the group has presented to the press appalling facts about collusion between the military and its contractors, and resulting shoddiness in such products as the M-1 tank, the C-5 cargo plane and the Cruise missile. Here Rasor describes those scandals as well as how she came to front for the Defense ""underground,'' whose members she deems courageous and patriotic. Her purpose, she maintains, is to protect taxpayers from being defrauded. What emerges is an infuriating picture of irresponsibility and duplicity on the part of the military and, ultimately, inferior weapons for our armed forces. Foreign rights: Andrew Wylie. November 14
