Arming Asia : Technonationalism and its Impact on Local Defense Industries, Hardback Book

Arming Asia : Technonationalism and its Impact on Local Defense Industries Hardback

Part of the Routledge Security in Asia Series series

Description

Bitzinger examines the phenomenon of attempted self-reliance in arms production within Asia, and assesses the extent of success in balancing this independence with the growing requirements of next-generation weapons systems.

He analyzes China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Southeast Asia.

The overarching question in the book is whether self-reliance is a strategically viable solution for development and manufacturing of arms.

Given the ever-changing dynamics and increasing demand for sophisticated next-generation weaponry, will these countries be able to individually sustain their domestic defense industries and constantly update their technologies?

This is the first book to analyze arms production from a regional perspective.
