The SIPRI Yearbook 1982 continues SIPRI's analyses of the world arms races, based on annual series of data on world military expenditures, arms production, the arms trade, and the military use of outer space. Efforts to control the arms races are described: the major agreements which have been concluded or which are under negotiation are summarized.

 

This Yearbook gives a complete account of weapon deployments in Europe and analyses the Nordic initiatives for a nuclear weapon-free zone in northern Europe. Lengthy reviews are made of the recent developments in chemical and biological warfare, and of the environmental aftermath of the war in Viet Nam. A regional study of the state of militarization and arms control in Latin America describes the background to the many potential conflicts in this large region of the third world.
