This book describes the scale, benefits and costs of military research and development (R&D). It discusses the process of converting military R&D to civilian applications, and examines specific opportunities for, and obstacles to, conversion in the US, Russia, France, Germany and the UK. Among a number of case studies, senior scientists from US and Russian nuclear weapons laboratories debate the futures for these massive complexes. While not directly dealing with nanotechnology, ideas expressed in this work may be applied to future nanotechnology research and development for military use.
