dc.description.abstract "The Internationalization of Weapons-Systems Acquisition" examines the strategic and economic aspects of past, present, and future patterns of officially sanctioned or directed armaments trade among the N.A.T.O. allies. The analysis is based on an international trade model adapted to the peculiar strategic objectives and constraints obtaining under contemporary circumstances of production and development. In particular, the thesis relates its view of alternative trade patterns to issues posed by national and international stakes in mobilization base configuration and arms control measures. While not explicitly depicting them in detail, the model is developed against the historical background and financial milieu which impinge on present and prospective institutions through changing modes of political, interpretation. Though not empirically applicable in its present form, the model serves to economically summarize disparate sources of pertinent information and, thus, to contribute to the substantiation of judgments concerning current practices and the prospects for such future developments in the area of international weapons development and production as the proposed Common Defense Market.
