Critical Acclaim
‘. . . the Hartley–Hooper contribution clearly provides teachers, researchers and students with an invaluable and durable guide to an important literature.’
– Steve Rankin, The Economic Journal

‘The Hartley-Hooper annotated bibliography The Economics of Defence, Disarmament and Peace provides a much needed guide to the literature in a field of obvious importance and of growing interest. It will be of great value to researchers, to students, to government officials, and to defense industry analysts in providing a key to prior work. At the same time, it should help open up this field to economists with an interest in the arms industry, arming and disarmament.’
– Michael D. Intriligator, The Center for International and Strategic Affairs, University of California, Los Angeles, US

‘The arrival of Hartley and Hooper's extensive annotated bibliography could not be more timely. . . the Bibliography makes an excellent resource for a military or academic library.’
– Edward F. Mickolus, Defence Economics
