The 21st Century Asian Arms Race (21AAR) serves as a resource for conflict and security related information specific to Eurasia and the Asia-Pacific. Since geopolitics and the international arms trade spans regions and societies 21AAR’s focus is not always confined to its core subject matter. This is because the critical details underpinning the shape and form of hard power exercised by modern states are often elusive and ambiguous. Uncovering these details requires keen instincts and a historical perspective. With evolution as its driving force, advanced weapons and modern governments are transforming in unexpected and fascinating ways. 21AAR tries to makes sense of this process as history unravels across the web.
