Special Studies in this volume include area studies of the Middle East, Russia, and Europe; armed conflict prevention, management and resolution; information on multilateral observer, peacekeeping and electoral operations; the comprehensive test ban treaty; multilateral military-related export control measures; and the trade in major conventional weapons and conventional arms control.

Industry Reviews

`SIPRI again confirms its well-earned reputation as by far the most authoritiative and comprehensive research institute to offer research and data to a wider public.' International Security Digest, vol.4 no.5, 1997 `Its value is threefold: hard data, evidence of trends, and analysis ... the SIPRI Yearbook provides the raw data from which new security concepts can, and need to be, fashioned. In its usual sober way, the Yearbook shows how far short we are of anything approaching a new world order, particularly for the parts of Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa engaged in internal conflicts.' Roger Williamson, Foundations: A Christian Action Journal
