Why do states collaborate in the production of advanced weaponry? Under what conditions do such collaborative arrangements succeed? What are the implications of armaments collaboration for the international economic and security environments? Arms collaboration is not a new phenomenon, but there is increasing debate-both in the United States and abroad-over the associated costs and benefits. Critics charge that collaborative projects result in technology give-aways, the creation of defense-industrial competitors, and the loss of domestic jobs. Supporters argue that the very same projects strengthen alliance relations, provide access to new technology, and result in arms sales which might otherwise have been lost to foreign competitors. In Global Arms Production these issues are addressed by distinguished contributors such as Ethan B. Kapstein, Jacques S. Gansler, William Keller, Joel L. Johnson, Jack Nun, Robert H. Trice, C. Michael Farr, Grant T. Hammond and Stanley Sienkiewicz. Co-published with the Center for International Affairs of Harvard University.
