This report examines the prospects for defence industries in Central and Eastern Europe as they attempt to restructure in the wake of the dramatic changes in the security environment brought about by the end of the cold war. Chapters examine key factors affecting the process of industrial restructuring in the region: the role of military doctrine, the trend in national military expenditure, the process of internalization of the defence industry, and the role of
arms exports. Contributors: Ian Anthony, Shannon Kile, Evamaria Loose-Weintraub
`There is ... much of interest in this book.'
`It is ... a testimony to the authors that, despite the problems of research in this area the reader is presented with a clear, lucid and thoughtful analysis of the conditions facing C&E European defence industries and the trends that are emerging ... This brief summary ... does not really catch the full flavour of the book which offers a depth of statistical information which is equally matched by the breadth of the analysis. It will, and should
become a standard text for both students and lecturers.'
Contemporary Security Policy
`the book is full of valuable facts, tables, figures about the situation in the region's defence industry, and well-founded suggestions concerning the future of the defence industry in Eastern Europe.'
