The Brazilian Defense Industry and the International System
Ethan B. Kapstein discusses the rise and fall of the Brazilian weapons production industry. He argues that the industry's growth in the 1970s and 1980s was due to a propitious set of circumstances in the international economic security environments. Changes in these environments in the 1990s, however, are likely to constrain the industry's future development.
