From the Editor

By Metta Spencer

APART FROM an occasional paper about the conversion of military industries to civilian production, we hear too little about the economics of peace. Seeking to improve the situation, we turned to a defence economist, Erik Poole, who agreed to be a guest co-editor this issue. Besides writing an analysis of Canada's military industrial complex, Erik compiled several other articles on quite different facets of peace economics. By chance, Ivan Head, who had just retired from his chairing the International Development Research Centre, was in town and Erik set up an interview with him. We also have a discussion with Christopher Kruegler on the economics of nonviolent sanctions-a topic on which little research has been conducted.
