Recommended Reading: The No-Nonsense Guide to the Arms Trade by Gideon Burrows

Between the Lines, 2002

Exposing the cynicism, bribery, insider deals, and political back-scratching that characterize today’s arms trade, Burrows not only looks at the trade in conventional arms but also at the transfer of torture tools to some of the world’s worst human rights abusers. With personal stories of protests and encounters with the arms business, The No-Nonsense Guide to the Arms Trade is a call to action.

Gideon Burrows is a London based journalist and campaigner. He has been the co-ordinator of the British Campaign Against the Arms Trade, and is actively involved in the peace and anti-arms trade movement.
