This is the 50th edition of the annual review by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) of developments in the field of armament, disarmament, arms control and security. In the first edition, SIPRI Yearbook 1968–69, Robert Neild, SIPRI’s first director, said the aim was to ‘produce a factual and balanced account of a controversial subject—the arms race and attempts to stop it’.1 This remains among the major issues covered by more recent editions of the SIPRI Yearbook, including this one. Other topics have also come to the fore. Like the inaugural edition, this volume reviews military spending and arms transfers as well as the status of nuclear forces and of chemical and biological weapons, along with events and efforts in disarmament and arms control negotiations. In addition, it surveys armed conflicts and interstate stand-offs, peace processes and peace operations, and the implementation of arms control agreements.
