This book offers a sober appraisal of the world trade in naval weapon systems at a time when recent attacks on merchant shipping in the Persian Gulf have kept maritime security at the centre of global attention. At the same time India, outside the international non-proliferation regime, has become the first-ever customer for a nuclear attack submarine. In 1987-88, the most expensive and controversial arms sales were related to naval systems, and yet while regional navies are busy increasing their firepower, the traditional naval powers remain dependent on their sea-borne trade. In particular the book highlights critical areas in which trade in naval systems differs from the sale of land or air systems, and it discusses the implications of these differences.

Industry Reviews

'Ian Anthony has written an interesting book which starts with a succinct introduction to the history and background of the naval arms trade. The sources and references for each chapter are well-presented. It is of interest to all who have a taste for naval history, and it is a must for those who engage in the naval arms trade.' Lindsay Bryson, Admiral, The RUSI Journal 'a most valuable guide to the naval arms trade' David J. Dunn, Staffordshire Polytechnic, Political Studies, Volume XXXIX Number 1 March 1991 'a welcome addition to the literature on the arms trade and weapon acquisition process ... The specialist reader will appreciate the depth of research, evidenced by the wide range of sources employed, as well as the useful tables and appendices. The well-written and informative text will also be of interest to the general reader ... this is an interesting and useful book, which is easy to recommend.' Joseph F. Ryan, Intelligence and National Security, Vol. 7, No. 2, April 1992 'a sound piece of work on the market and its implications ... Much has happened since 1990, but the underlying strategic issues for national navies are little altered, and an intelligent market survey of this type is always welcome.' Andrew Lambert, King's College, London, Arms Control, Vol. 13, No. 1, April '92 'a welcome addition to the literature on the arms trade and weapon acquisition process ... The specialist reader will appreciate the depth of research, evidenced by the wide range of sources employed, as well as the useful tables and appendices.
