Small Arms Survey 2004
This is a second-hand copy of the book Small Arms Survey 2004, a project of the Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva and published by Oxford University Press.
Condition: this is a used book in good condition, though there is shelf wear to the cover. The product image probably looks worse than it is due to the black surface showing every imperfection in high detail. Twink covers up something on inside front cover. One assumes it was a name or address of former owner.
From the back:
The Small Arms Survey 2004: Rights at Risk provides original research and updated information on small arms production, stockpiles, and trade. In focusing on the links between small arms and the abuse of human rights, this edition explores the impact of arms exports to areas of conflict, the role of weapons in global violence and crime, and the implementation of human rights standards in police forces worldwide. The Survey also features in-depth coverage of issues such as the growing concern over MANPADS and the role of small arms in the Pacific and Kyrgyzstan.
