Theoretically Well Armed?

Niklas Schörnig analyzes the US-arms industry policy in the 1990s

In his publication "Theoretisch gut gerüstet? Die amerikanische Rüstungsindustriepolitikder 1990er Jahre aus IB-Perspektive" (Theoretically Well Armed? The US arms industry policy in the 1990s from International Relations perspective), Niklas Schörnig analyzes this special policy during this period. Supported by the government, it came to an extensive consolidation and restructuring of the US arms industry.
