This monograph yields important insights into the questions that surround the issues of military spending and demilitarisation. Put most simply, the arguments presented by Harris suggest that whilst ‘all guns cost butter, some guns cost less butter than others’. Furthermore, alternative approaches to defence mean that a country’s security does not have to come at the price of a higher growth path. The arguments offer valuable insights into optimal levels and forms of military expenditure within the context of developing countries and Africa in particular.
