Prometheus's Exchange: the Arms Trade Network and the Globalization of Violence



The last fifty years have seen two big changes in world politics.  First, most political violence now occurs within states rather than between great powers. Second, the decrease in costs of exchange have integrated the smallest and most remote countries in the global exchange of goods and services. This book study how these two fundamental elements of modern world politics combine to spread political violence throughout the world through the global trade of small arms and light weapons.
