Abstract
Over the past decade the great powers, particularly the US, have sharply accelerated the transfer of arms to the Third World. This pattern had developed by the mid sixties but the dramatic impact of the sales did not attract serious attention until the post October 1973 war period and the subsequent drastic increases in the price of OPEC oil. The situation is complicated by the large quantities of weapons being supplied and because many of these weapons are the most sophisticated available, including new conventional types.
