    One thought on “And Weapons For All”

    1. Guess who leads the world in the sales of weapons? Of course, the US. This was true even during the cold war. Hartung is not, in my view, a deep theorist. But all the concreteness is here for the following claim: markets are not always consistent with democratic process. Lots of interviews with arms sellers. And the portrait of the Paris Air Show is worth the price of the book.
