Alistair Edgar and David Haglund examine changes in the international demand for defence products in the post-Cold War era; review the reorganization and rationalization of the supply side of the international defence market through various government policy initiatives and corporate strategies; and discuss the ways in which the Canadian government and defence producers have attempted to cope with this new and uncertain international environment. They also explore the international and domestic contexts - military, economic, and political - within which defence industries operate. Edgar and Haglund's analysis draws on extensive interviews with political and industry leaders, military personnel, and government officials from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Spain, and Germany. This timely study of the domestic, American, and other NATO defence markets will interest scholars and students of Canadian defence policy, Canadian foreign policy, and Canadian external relations, and public servants, politicians, and personnel in the industry.
