From defense to development? : international perspectives on realizing the peace dividend by Sean DiGiovanna( )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1990's saw worldwide military spending plummet almost 40 per cent. The dividend that this relative peace created became available for projects to achieve clean water, agricultural productivity and education that were intended to promote greater human welfare. The early part of the twenty-first century however, has seen this downward pressure on defense budgets begin to turn around. This impressive book tracks the progress of twelve countries on five continents in moving resources from defense to civilian activity in the 1990's. Based on intensive field research, thanks to its truly international array of contributors, the book addresses each country with an impressive standard of scholarship. This accessible book is written in non-technical language and will be of great use and interest to academics involved with defense economics, defense studies and development studies. It will also prove popular with international development organizations, the defense industry and policy-makers around the world
