In 1994, with the advent of majority rule, the new South African government faced the hopeful, yet sobering task of negotiating the country's past while crafting its future. Included in this process was South Africa's armaments industry, which had been an important pillar of the thoroughly discredited apartheid government. This book explores the significant historical and ideological obstacles the new South Africa overcame and the rehabilitation of the arms industry in the 1990s to serve and ultimately contribute to the country's redevelopment.
