This book offers a sober appraisal of the world trade in naval weapon systems at a time when recent attacks on merchant shipping in the Persian Gulf have kept maritime security at the centre of global attention. At the same time India, outside the international non-proliferation regime, has become the first-ever customer for a nuclear attack submarine. In 1987-88, the most expensive and controversial arms sales were related to naval systems, and yet while regional navies are busy increasing their firepower, the traditional naval powers remain dependent on their sea-borne trade. In particular the book highlights critical areas in which trade in naval systems differs from the sale of land or air systems, and it discusses the implications of these differences.
The strategy of the British and French prior to World War II was to preserve the status quo after the disaster of World War I. Donald Stoker's book examines British and French involvement from 1919 to 1939 in the creation and development of the naval forces of Poland, Finland and the three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. This is an in-depth scholarly study of a subject that should appeal to students of international history, strategy, international relations and naval history in general.
Stoker and Grant have assembled a collection that explores myriad aspects of the world trade in arms. Rare among volumes of collected essays, it has a coherent focus and reliance on solid current research. It provides a valuable tool for students of military, diplomatic, business, and social history.
Relations between China and Russia have evolved dramatically since their first diplomatic contact, particularly during the twentieth century. During the past decade China and Russia have made efforts to strengthen bilateral ties and improve cooperation on a number of diplomatic fronts. The PeopleÕs Republic of China and the Russian Federation maintain exceptionally close and friendly relations, strong geopolitical and regional cooperation, and significant levels of trade. In The Future of China-Russia Relations, scholars from around the world explore the current state of the relationship between the two powers and assess the prospects for future cooperation and possible tensions in the new century. The contributors examine Russian and Chinese perspectives on a wide range of issues, including security, political relationships, economic interactions, and defense ties. This collection explores the energy courtship between the two nations and analyzes their interests and policies regarding Central Asia, the Korean Peninsula, and Taiwan.
The arms race at sea is a dangerous nuclear race which is causing growing international concern and must be brought under control. What are the hard facts about the situation? This book documents the realities of the competition - especially the nuclearization of naval forces - and dispels some of the myths surrounding the naval arms race. This incisive analysis of naval forces of the East and West concludes that, contrary to common perceptions, the US and its allies have a considerable military advantage over the Soviet Navy, a trend which is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. The authors describe in detail the widespread nuclearization of naval forces of all five nuclear navies, analyse the implications for security and arms control, and conclude with suggestions for possible arms control measures.
Destructive acts of terrorism create social and economic imperatives for governments to mitigate desctruction within their countries, potentially inducing an increase in conventional arms imported to bolster counterterrorism efforts. Using fixed effects regression analysis for the period 1990-2015 and controlling for time effects, I test whether the number of desth from terrorism has an impact on the global arms network by analyzing data from the University of Maryland Global Terrorism Database and the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute's conventional arms transfer data. My results indicate conclusive evidence that deaths from terrorism are significantly correlated to global arms imports, and that a 1% increase in deaths from terrorism results in a 0.403% increase in arms imported. Since instances of terrorist attacks and deaths resulting from terrorism are on a rise, global arms trade is also increasing in value, suggesting that terrorism is a direct contributor to a new era of arms proliferation.
