Details

An insight into how the arms trade works and the deals which are cut long before the weapons are deployed. Completely revised edition. A valuable introduction combined with an expose of this dirty yet legal business. Includes full history, sharp critical analysis, and coverage of the the most recent controversies. Most weapons are made in countries which are member of the UN Security Council. Exposes the cynicism, bribery and insider deals which characterise the conventional trade the hidden world of torture. Author Nicholas Gilby has led Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT)’s efforts to expose the corruption at the heart of Britain’s arms deals with Saudi Arabia over the past four decades. In 2008 he defeated Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office in an Information Tribunal to force the disclosure of many documents concerning corruption in Britain’s arms deals with Saudi Arabia. His research on arms trade corruption has been extensively featured in The Guardian (and on the newspaper’s ‘BAE files’ website), TV (BBC Newsnight and Al Jazeera) and in an academic journal. He was previously a director of TAPOL, the Indonesia Human Rights Campaign.
