This book covers the history of Brazil as an arms producer and exporter. The book follows the time line of Brazil from the 1920s when Brazil first began producing its own arms and exporting others to the 1980s and early 1990s when arms production in Brazil had the made the country one of the world's leading arms exporters. The book examines not only the production of arms in Brazil but also the political and ideological bases for this production and the consequences this production has on both Brazil and other countries.
