The theme of this collection of essays is technology transfer. The topic has three major aspects: the interchange of technologies between military and civilian applications - spin-off, dual use, conversion and diversification fall under this heading; the proliferation of military arms, which could occur either through arms races between developed nations or through the transfer of military technology from developed arms industries to less developed nations - proliferation, arms races and arms control agreements fall under this heading; and the transfer of civilian technologies from developing nations to less developed nations. The expression, North-South transfer and the idea of development come under this final section. The essays offer examination of all three aspects.
