Staff Reviews


The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has been credited with some of the most important inventions of our time (e.g., the Internet) and cultivates its reputation as a think tank that produces beneficial innovations. However, DARPA was created in 1958 with unprecedented license and budgeting specifically to develop military weapons and it has kept secret its normal operations. Annie Jacobsen unlocks the classification to give us a history of this mysterious agency and to explore its doings today.

Description


Discover the definitive history of DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency, in this Pulitzer Prize finalist from the author of the New York Times bestseller Area 51.

No one has ever written the history of the Defense Department's most secret, most powerful, and most controversial military science R&D agency. In the first-ever history about the organization, New York Times bestselling author Annie Jacobsen draws on inside sources, exclusive interviews, private documents, and declassified memos to paint a picture of DARPA, or "the Pentagon's brain," from its Cold War inception in 1958 to the present. This is the book on DARPA -- a compelling narrative about this clandestine intersection of science and the American military and the often frightening results.
