Defence economics is defined to embrace all aspects of the economics of defence, disarmament, conversion and peace. This definition needs to be modified to include the economics of wars, conflict and non-conventional conflicts. Defence economics has made a number of pioneering contributions, many of which were from US academics. Defence economics is essentially the application of economic principles and analysis to defence issues, including formulation of defence policy. Contributions to the field of defence studies have historically brought analysis and expertise to bear on strategic concerns, international relations and issues relating to the organisation of the military. This book makes an interesting reading for historians, defence and policy analysts, researchers and general readers alike. .
