First published in 1988, Arms Transfers and Dependence was written to provide a view of arms transfers in the context of the global distribution of power.
The book analyses different types of dependence and is focused on comparing the enhancement of military capabilities as a result of arms transfers with the dependence that may be caused by those transfers. In doing so, it provides an overview of how particular structures of imports and exports of arms lead to dependence.
