Arms in Academia : The Political Economy of the Modern UK Defence Industry, Hardback Book

Arms in Academia : The Political Economy of the Modern UK Defence Industry Hardback



This book studies how the arms trade has continued to receive generous state subsidies, along with less direct forms of financial and intellectual support from academia in the UK.

It examines the ways in which arms dealing has contributed to the violation of human rights in the Middle East, North Africa, South America, Indochina and other regions of intense conflict, and in doing so, reveals how the industry sells a particular image of itself to the public. The volume: Extensively covers the arms trade and its impact across the world. Shows how the UK arms trade has developed research, investment and consultancy links with universities, museums and other public institutions. Discusses the future of the arms trade and explores alternatives in terms of job opportunities, economic growth and academic research criteria. A major intervention in international politics, this volume will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of military and strategic studies, international relations, human rights and the social sciences in general.

It will also be of interest to policy analysts and defence professionals.
