Description

WEAPONS investigates the armaments industry, revealing why the United States, the Soviet Union, Western Europe, and Israel export huge numbers of missiles, planes, and tanks for reasons of diplomatic leverage--and cash.  Explaining why these new weapons have become indispensable to both finance and diplomacy--more than in war--the author presents the horrifying figures of the weapons inventories of NATO, the Warsaw Pact allies, China, Israel and the rest of the Middle East--showing how each country fits into the global balance of terror.
