This, the 49th edition of the SIPRI Yearbook, was finalized against the background of a widely perceived deepening of confrontation between Russia and the United States and a commensurate rise in international tensions. These events took place in a context shaped by broader trends that were an important feature of 2017 and that are tracked in this Yearbook. International arms transfers increased and global military spending stabilized at a level higher than it was at the end of the cold war. There were many challenges in 2017 to the smooth functioning and durability of the international system for managing complex armed conflicts. These challenges included escalating rhetoric between North Korea and the USA, deepening rifts in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA; especially between Saudi Arabia and Iran) and significant pressures on major arms control treaties.
