Nicholas Gilby exposes the cynicism, bribery and insider deals which characterise the conventional arms trade as well as the more hidden world of torture. One of the few up-to-date works on the whole of the arms trade, this book puts the global trade in weapons in the context of history, and includes recent controversial deals as well as case studies on Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Darfur.
About the Author: Nicholas Gilby 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 the 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 featured in The Guardian, BBC Newsnight and Al Jazeera.
