This book offers a sober appraisal of the world trade in naval weapon systems at a time when recent attacks on merchant shipping in the Persian Gulf have kept maritime security at the centre of global attention. At the same time India, outside the international non-proliferation regime, has become the first-ever customer for a nuclear attack submarine. In 1987-88, the most expensive and controversial arms sales were related to naval systems, and yet while regional navies are busy increasing their firepower, the traditional naval powers remain dependent on their sea-borne trade. In particular the book highlights critical areas in which trade in naval systems differs from the sale of land or air systems, and it discusses the implications of these differences.

Military Industry and Regional Defense Policy re-examines military industrialization in the developing world, focusing on policy-making in producer states and the impact of security perceptions on such policy-making.Timothy D. Hoyt reassesses the role of regional state sub-systems in international relations, and recent historical studies of international technology and arms transfers. Looking at Israel, Iraq and India, the three most powerful regional powers in the Cold War era, he presesnts an expert analysis of the three-sided phenomena of the regional hegemony, the regional competitor and the small over-achiever.This new book breaks away from existing literature on military industries in the developing world, which has focused on their economic and development costs and benefits. These past studies have used primitive methodologies that focus on the production of complete weapons systems - a misleading gauge in a world of growing international defense cooperation. They have also ignored empirical evidence of the impact of local military industrial production on Cold War regional conflict, and of the defence planning and concerns that drove development of indigenous military industries in key regional powers. This new text delivers an incisive new perspective.

A RAND study analyzed Chinese and U.S. military capabilities in two scenarios (Taiwan and the Spratly Islands) from 1996 to 2017, finding that trends in most, but not all, areas run strongly against the United States. While U.S. aggregate power remains greater than China’s, distance and geography affect outcomes. China is capable of challenging U.S. military dominance on its immediate periphery—and its reach is likely to grow in the years ahead.

Die Revolutionierung der Landschaftsarchitektur durch intelligente Materialien und Technologien Living Systems stellt eine Vielzahl von neuartigen Materialtechnologien für die Landschaftsarchitektur dar. Die Projekte und Materialien sind in enger Zusammenarbeit von Entwerfern, Ingenieuren, Wissenschaftlern und Ökologen entstanden. In einer Verbindung aus praxisorientierter Darstellung und theoretischem Hintergrund rücken Technologien zu Themen wie Wachstum, Fließen, Metabolismus, Klima und Wetterphänomenen in den Mittelpunkt. Die Darstellung vernetzt die Materialien und Technologien entsprechend ihrer Funktionsweisen, Prozesse und Eigenschaften miteinander. Detaillierte Zeichnungen und konstruktionsrelevante Fotos illustrieren die 36 internationalen Projekte und 23 Materialbeispiele. Zu den komplexen Systemen gehören vertikale Wachstumsstrukturen, Prävention vor Überflutungen, Anlagen zur Regenwasserversickerung sowie zur Minimierung von Bodenerosion. Beispielprojekte stammen unter anderem von West8 (Niederlande), GROSS.MAX (Großbritannien), Weiss-Manfredi Architects (USA), Kathryn Gustafson (USA) und Vogt Landschaftsarchitekten (Schweiz).
