Seymour Melman

seymourMelmanThe 1-15 June issue of Counterpunch features a story about the US government’s snooping on Professor Seymour Melman during the years 1958-1974.  What I wanted to note were the titles of two of Melman’s books, Our Depleted Society and The Permanent War Economy.  Also noteworthy is a review of Melman’s 1962 book The Peace Race that appears in his FBI file; apparently a researcher at the Bureau’s Central Research Section was assigned to write the book up.  The remarkable thing about this review is how favorably it reported Melman’s argument against the Cold War military buildup.
