Despite the fact that arms manufacturing in most Western nations ultimately represents vast fortunes of public funds flowing into private coffers for products that deal in injury or death, the industry is usually represented as a source of national pride. So pervasive is its influence that when it comes to matters of spending on arms, the tail often wags the dog, with the requirements of the industry being put before effective strategy.
In this easy-to-read mini eBook, Dinyar Godrej presents the New Internationalist guide to the Arms Trade. The arms industry tends to have government's ear. Why, wonders Dinyar, when it is so counter-productive?
This second in our series of mini eBook Essential Guides will help you understand the clout of the arms industry.

The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
The New Internationalist magazine is not being screwed or manipulated by any dominant ideological group or any dominant corporate interest. Therefore the New Internationalist editorial is genuinely the New Internationalist editorial.
What motivated the founders of the New Internationalist magazine was a high idealism; a real sense that we could change things; that if people knew the facts about what was going on, then they could actually have the wherewithal to campaign and try to make the world a better place.
The New Internationalist magazine explains and clarifies all the confusions and contradictions we encounter daily in the media's international news coverage.
