Guns, landmines, bombs and rockets - the arms trade brings death and destruction to millions of people around the world, many of them civilians. Yet most of these weapons are made in countries which are members of the UN Security council. Exposing the cynicism, bribery, insider deals and political backscratching which characterise today's arms trade, Nicolas Gilbey not only looks at the trade in conventional arms but also at the transfer of torture tools to some of the world's worst human rights abusers.

Product Description:

One of the few up-to-date works on the whole of the arms trade, this book puts the global trade in weapons in the context of history and includes recent controversial deals as well as case studies on Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Darfur. Exposes the cynicism, bribery and insider deals which characterize the conventional trade and the hidden world of torture.

Review:

"An important book that should be studied in every home, school and university. If all armed disputes in the third world were to cease today, all the economies of prosperous nation would collapse tomorrow." Amazon Customer Review (5 Star)
