The American military-industrial complex and accompanying culture are most often associated with massive weapons procurement programs and advanced technologies, but it is also connected to one of the world's most highly engineered consumer products: the cigarette. Unpacking the origins of the controversial relationship among the military, the cigarette industry, and tobacco-land politicians during the 20th century, Joel Bius reveals the causes and effects of this 70-year clash between bureaucrats, soldiers, lobbyists, legislators, and anti-smoking activists.
