Overview

This book aims to correct the lack of a systematic approach to the issue of conversion. While governments frequently talk of peace dividends they seem unwilling to take the necessary steps to achieve them. Periods of war and peace have the power to shape the foundation of the slate, and therefore the way in which a state perceives the purpose of war will in turn affect the way in which it pursues peace and disarmament. Is conversion predominantly an economic, military, political or social issue? With this question in mind Laura Cleary has attempted to examine the way in which a state, the Soviet Union, defines its security and how this has influenced its attempts at disarmament.
