Is the arms trade totally uncontrolled? What are the main obstacles to limitations on arms transfers? What can be learned from past attempts at arms transfer control? This book, which completes SIPRI's trilogy on the facts and implications of Third World build-up of major conventionalweapons, assesses past efforts, current proposals and future possibilities to limit the transfer of weapons and military technology to Third World countries. It is a companion to the two SIPRI volumes, Arms Production in the Third World (1986) and Arms Transfers to the Third World 1971-85 (OUP, 1987)
Thomas Ohlson is a former Researcher and Project Leader for Arms Trade Project at SIPRI; now Researcher at Centre for African Studies, Maputo.

Editorial Reviews

'a collection of scholarly chapters written by contributors from both the developed and the less developed world ... As usual with SIPRI books, the collection of factual material is excellent. Anthony Clayton, Army Quarterly and Defence Journal
