The Big Picture on "Security by Other Means"
This chapter provides an analytical and historical overview of attempts to regulate the accumulation and use of military force. It describes two measures designed to limit arms and military activities: arms control and disarmament. The implementation of arms limitation agreements is examined alongside the challenge of laying clear objectives. The chapter concludes with the scope of national military policies.
