From the Introduction: “Any comprehensive survey of reports on U.S. defense acquisition organization and procedures during the 40-year period from 1949 to 1988 encounters a potential problem of overload. The need to be selective becomes immediately apparent. Hundreds of reports – some broadly focused, others more narrowly so – have been issued. Some are ground-breaking and innovative in content; others are derivative. In order to achieve “manageability”, we have divided the pertinent literature into three categories.”
