The Post-Cold War Armaments Momentum
by Marek Thee

Marek Thee, reveals, that despite the decline of the Cold War, spending on military research and development was already increasing even before the Gulf crisis unfolded. What are the main features of this new arms race? What is happening inside the world’s military laboratories? How can they be opened up to public scrutiny, and how can the enormous scientific resources they swallow up be liberated to serve more humane purposes? Marek Thee addresses his subject with characteristic thoroughness.
