Description
What are the driving forces in the arms race since the 1960s. This book takes up the internal factors of arms dynamics, such as bureaucratic politics, interservice rivalry, and the military-industrial complex, as well as external factors such as interactive arms dynamics between the two superpowers.

It addresses technological determinism - the idea that what is technically possible will be done as opposed to the idea that `politics is in command'. Finally it examines how such factors as long economic waves and power transitions in the international system affect in the international system affect arms races.

These issues are examined from a variety of theoretical perspectives, and illustrated by a wealth of empirical material. The book is central to international relations, strategic studies, and peace research. Students will find it particularly useful as an up-to-date survey of current theory and research. The extensive bibliography also makes this volume an invaluable reference tool.
