Military Assistance in Recent Wars: The Dominance of the Superpowers

Synopsis

"Stephanie Neuman's careful and insightful analysis of the role of arms transfers in wars in the Third World is the best study of this important subject. Combining thorough research into eight recent conflicts with well-designed concepts, this book challenges conventional wisdom about the impact of the diffusion of modern military technology and the decline of the role of the superpowers. The facts and arguments here should make policymakers, experts, and interested observers think more clearly about the behavior and options of superpowers and states that are seeking arms." Professor Robert L. Jervis, Department of Political Science, Institute of War and Peace Studies, Columbia University
