In addition to these regular features and statistics, this latest SIPRI Yearbook contains special studies on debt and international security, on the prospects for the 1990 Review Conference of the Non-Proliferation Treaty, on laser isotope separation technology, and on the NATO debate over the modernization of short-range nuclear missiles. Its comprehensive coverage makes it an invaluable sourcebook for anyone seeking authoritative, factual information on issues of armaments and disarmament and thus to anyone interested in strategic studies, war studies, peace studies, and international relations.
