Vol 12, No 1 (2017)

Organized by Renaud Bellais, his own article on the naval shipbuilding industry starts off a symposium on the European armaments industry. Bellais' article is followed by an article on the land armaments industry by Adrien Caralp. The military helicopter industry is examined by Josselin Droff while Vasilis Zervos looks at the outer space industry. Finally, Renaud Bellais and Daniel Fiott discuss issues of disruptive innovation and market destabilization within the context of the European armaments industry. An article that collects global perspectives on the foregoing articles concludes the symposium. The perspectives were written by Richard Bitzinger (Singapore), Aude Fleurant and Yannick Quean (Sweden/France), Keith Hartley (U.K.), Wiliam Hartung (USA), and Stefan Markowsiki and Robert Wylie (Australia). The issue concludes with a stand-alone article by Kjell Hausken and Mthuli Ncube exploring how benefits provision by an office incumbent interacts with the probability of triggering and spreading a revolutionary uprising.
