Abstract : Since the late 1970s, the transfer of technical data and industrial know-how has increased in proportion to the sale of military end-items and new arms production facilities have appeared, particularly in the third world. This paper examines implications of these developments for the industrialized world. It analyzes the extent to which weapons production is increasing in the third world, its impact on the structure of the world arms transfer system, and its significance for U.S. interests.
