Conversion Survey, 1997: Global Disarmament and Disposal of Surplus Weapons

Synopsis

This book updates information on key issues regarding the conversion of global resources from military to civilian use. It provides unique sets of data, such as an index of disarmament and figures on employment in the defense industry. The 1997 edition emphasizes the generation, scrapping, destruction, and transfer of weapon stocks which have been declared surplus because of arms control agreements, unilateral disarmament, or the end of armed conflicts. Analyses, empirical data, and policy discussions deal with heavy and light conventional arms, as well as chemical warfare agents and nuclear weapons.
