Editorial Reviews

The second volume in a study commissioned by UNU/WIDER examines why there has been little conversion from military to civilian purposes, and discusses how the military sector is becoming more globalized and informal. Topics include disarmament and the disposal of surplus weapons; the contraction of the world military aircraft industry; the defense electronics sector; the Brazilian arms industry and civil- military relations; conversion in Ukraine; defense industry restructuring in Pacific-Asia; and the conversion of the US Subic Naval Base in the Philippines. Distributed in the US by Books International. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
