Guns, landmines, bombs and rockets - the arms trade brings death and destruction to millions of people around the world, many of them civilians. Yet most of these weapons are made in countries which are members of the UN Security council.
Exposing the cynicism, bribery, insider deals and political backscratching which characterise today's arms trade, Nicolas Gilbey not only looks at the trade in conventional arms but also at the transfer of torture tools to some of the world's worst human rights abusers.
