Melvin Goodman 

When: Wed., Jan. 23, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: free

Melvin Goodman's new book, National Insecurity: The Cost of American Militarism, argues that spending less on the military will stabilize the economy and actually support long-term security. The book coincides with President Barack Obama's nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA: Goodman was with the CIA for 24 years, and led the charge against Brennan when he was nominated for the same position four years ago. Goodman, currently director of the National Security Project at the Center for International Policy and an adjunct professor of government at Johns Hopkins University, has firsthand experience with war planners and intelligence strategists, and critiques the military economy from President Eisenhower through President Obama. On Wednesday, Jan. 23, at Books Inc. (1760 Fourth St., Berkeley). 7 p.m., free. 510-525-7777 or
