Have you seen the full range of No-Nonsense Guides?
Guns, landmines, bombs and rockets - the arms trade brings death and destruction to millions of people around the world, many of them civilians. Yet many of these weapons are made in countries which are members of the UN Security Council.
Exposing the cynicism, bribery, insider deals and political back-scratching which characterise today's arms trade, Gideon Burrows not only looks at the trade in conventional arms but also at the transfer of torture tools to some of the world's worst human rights abusers.
Laced with personal stories of protests and encounters with the arms business, the No-Nonsense Guide to the Arms Trade is, above all, a call to action.
Diagrams, charts and graphs used throughout to illustrate key information.
