With much less attention then nuclear or chemical weapons disarmament, the destruction of surplus small arms is reshaping the arsenals of the world. This is the first full-length examination of one of the most effective, but least recognized forces reshaping global security today.
This book was published as a special issue of Contemporary Security Policy.
Aaron Karp is Lecturer in Political Science at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia and Senior Consultant with the Small Arms Survey in Geneva, Switzerland.
