Torpedo Volume 4. Stock Image. Published by IDW Publishing, Although the partnership in production did exist, Epstein ultimately does not achieve her goal of showing that the military-industrial complex emerged from the torpedo-production process. Certainly there are hints of future problems that would have to be addressed, but within the existing work they remain hints. The claim that the military-industrial complex is due solely or even principally to the purchase agreements between the military and private firms is something of a stretch.
As illustrated by this analysis, the military-industrial complex comprises more than just the interaction between the navy and the industrial researchers creating the torpedo or any other technology. Yet Epstein does not move beyond the surface of this connection and narrowly focuses on the relations between industry leaders and naval command.

It is true that patent and copyright issues emerge when there is technological feedback between a buyer and a seller, but such issues in and of themselves do not lead to a sustained complex and the permanent war economy that accompanies it see, for instance, Seymour Melman, The Permanent War Economy: American Capitalism in Decline [New York: St. Duncan and Christopher J.

Torpedo manufacture was often experimental, and there was some controversy over pricing experimental technology at times pp. She briefly explores the desires of Congress pp. In fact, political lobbying does not manifest itself clearly in the book in any fashion. Much of what Epstein provides to make her case is actually evidence that government agents were attempting to reduce what it owed to private firms rather than evidence that there was a functional synthesis between the two. In fact, competitive tactics were explicitly used to incentivize cheaper and better production from the industries.

Great Britain allowed its Royal Gun Factory to continue production alongside the Whitehead Company and even invited more competition into the market in order to keep the company in line with price and quality p. The United States employed a similar strategy as it moved to government production p.
Not only did both the United States and Great Britain retain torpedomanufacturing capability expressly and intentionally through their respective arsenals, but the two nations also allowed for the international competition between each of the private firms as well as other less discussed firms pp.
In none of these arrangements does there appear to be any solid assurances between industry and the military that would lead one to believe that an iron triangle of vested interests was forming in torpedo manufacture. It could be argued that rather than showing the formation of the militaryindustrial complex, Epstein is making a rather compelling budgetary case for an open international arms trade.
