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.

The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
For anyone who wants a lucid, factual, reliable guide to some of the most important issues of our time, I strongly recommend you check out the No-Nonsense Guides.
Gideon Burrows gives a chilling insight into how the arms trade works and how the deals are cut long before the weapons are deployed.
The New Internationalist is exactly the sort of intelligent, committed and progressive publication which here at The Chaser, we strongly disapprove of.
New Internationalist keeps me focussed on the realities of the wider world and helps to keep my rushed life in perspective.
New Internatioanlist supports Fair Trade producers like The Equitable Marketing Association. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Equitable Marketing Association: Leather items are manufactured in the EMA Development Centre in Baruipur, about an hour and half's drive from Kolkata, India.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
