MEDIA REVIEWS
"Stephanie Neuman has established herself as one of the most respected experts in the field of Third World military capabilities and planning. Here she has assembled an impressive array of documentation on the important issue of military assistance--its use by the superpowers in conditions of war and peace; its role in shaping the relations between Third World states and the superpowers; the search for alternative sources of supply by Third World states; and the effects (or lack of effects) of military assistance on a series of contemporary conflicts. The study is notable for its use of comparative methodology, drawing on a wide variety of case studies, and for its critical examination of the conventional wisdom. Any student of international conflict will find in this study a wealth of data, presented in an orderly and economical manner, and a sophisticated analysis of a set of complex and important questions."-Gary G. Sick, Program Officer, U.S. Foreign Policy, The Ford Foundation
"Stephanie Neuman's careful and insightful analysis of the role of arms transfers in wars in the Third World is the best study of this important subject. Combining thorough research into eight recent conflicts with well-designed concepts, this book challenges conventional wisdom about the impact of the diffusion of modern military technology and the decline of the role of the superpowers. The facts and arguments here should make policymakers, experts, and interested observers think more clearly about the behavior and options of superpowers and states that are seeking arms."-Professor Robert L. Jervis, Department of Political Science, Institute of War and Peace Studies, Columbia University
