A Conversation with Harold Brown, Former U.S. Defense Secretary

Harold Brown's unique, ongoing career spans science, academia, government, and the corporate sector over ten U.S. presidencies. In a conversation with Kent Kresa, former CEO and president of Northrop Grumman, Brown shares stories from his new book, Star-Spangled Security: Applying Lessons Learned over Six Decades Safeguarding America, and reflects on what those experiences teach us about current and future challenges facing the United States and the world.

Between 1987 and 2003, Kresa helped transform Northrop Grumman from a small boutique military contractor with $5 billion in annual revenues to a thriving, broad-based $28-billion enterprise.
