Written by Nicholas Gilby.
Published in Canada in association with New Internationalist™ Publications Ltd. by Between the Lines, 2009.


One of the few works on the whole of the arms trade, this No-Nonsense Guide 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. Despite the cynicism, bribery, and corruption that characterize the trade, it continues to receive government backing; and UN Security Council member states are the biggest exporters of arms, often to repressive regimes.

Guns, landmines, bombs and rockets - the arms trade brings death and destruction to millions of people around the world, many of them civilians.

Nicholas Gilby, who led Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT)'s efforts to expose the corruption at the heart of Britain's arms deals with Saudi Arabia, use the latest evidence to provide a valuable and critical introduction to this most destructive business.

With personal stories of protests and encounters with the arms business, The No-Nonsense Guide to the Arms Trade is a call to action.
