: Defence Industries (1988) : A Global Perspective Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge Revivals series

Paperback / softback


Originally published in 1989 Defence Industries presents a worldwide survey of defence industries.

It argues that modern weapon systems and electronic warfare have led to the transition of the military-industrial enterprise into a multifaceted entity where electronics production is the key.

It analyses the extent of defence industries, showing that large portions of the aerospace, shipbuilding, motor vehicle and electronics industries are devoted to defence and discusses where the defence industries are located.

It examines the differences in government policies, contrasting the superpowers, with newly industrialised countries.
