Technology Transfer, Paperback / softback Book

Technology Transfer Paperback / softback

Edited by Dietrich Schroeer, Micro Elena



This title was first published in 2000: The theme of this collection of essays is "technology transfer".

The topic has three major aspects: the interchange of technologies between military and civilian applications - "spin-off", "dual use", "conversion" and "diversification" fall under this heading; the proliferation of military arms, which could occur either through arms races between developed nations or through the transfer of military technology from developed arms industries to less developed nations - "proliferation", "arms races" and "arms control agreements" fall under this heading; and the transfer of civilian technologies from developing nations to less developed nations.

The expression, "North-South transfer" and the idea of "development" come under this final section.

The essays offer examination of all three aspects.
