The No-nonsense Guide to the Arms TradeBook - 2009 | Updated edition
One of the few up-to-date works on the whole of the arms trade, this No-Nonsense Guide explores not just the movement of weaponry across borders, but also the problematic activities that sustain the trade, such as espionage, government corruption, and shady taxpayer subsidies.
This Guide reveals that despite Western governments' preaching of the evils of the arms trade, they are the biggest exporters of weapons and they often sell them to repressive regimes throughout the world.
This revised second edition uses the latest statistics and information available to provide a critical introduction to this most destructive business.
