Abstract : This, the 24th edition of World Military Expenditures and Arms Transfers (WMEAT), presents a mixed statistical picture of global military effort through 1994. There have been gratifying declines in militarization in many areas of the world. In some of these areas, however, the reductions have been caused by serious economic difficulties and may not be durable. In other areas there are signs of new buildups of forces. Military spending and conventional arms imports in the developing world as a whole have declined from their Cold War highs of the 1980's, but have not yet fallen below levels of the mid-1970's.
