Drawing together the work of eight experts on the arms trade and Asia-Pacific security affairs, Arms Trade, Transparency and Security in South-East Asia presents analysis and extensive data related to the arms trade and defence policy transparency mechanisms in South-East Asia. It also includes a de facto regional arms register for South-East Asia covering the period 1970-96, and will prove useful to security analysts and policy-makers seeking new approaches to transparency and confidence-building in South-East Asia.

Industry Reviews

"...this volume is very comprehensive and systematic in presenting the issues of arms transparency and defence-related matters in Southeast Asia. Most of the authors contributing to this book are those who have been involved not only in research activities on the subject, but also in various networks, particularly in the so-called second track diplomacy, actively providing analysis and policy recommendations on the related issues. This makes this volume a valuable contribution to our understanding of security issues in Southeast Asia." Edy Prasetyono, Centre for Strategic and International Studies, Jakarta. Contemporary Security Policy, April 1999 Vol 20 Issue 1
