'Small Arms, Crime and Conflict is a useful resource to complement the annual small arms survey reports that many of the authors in this book have also contributed to over the years. This book is excellent in reviewing past research into SALW, challenging it, and providing new insights.' - Alex Vines, International Afairs, Vol. 88, 2, March 2012'This volume is a vital contribution for small arms researchers and Africanists interested in the role that SALW flows play in conflicts that they study. Beyond that, the book's methodological discussions and portrayal of the transformation of a field study should prove enlightening.' - Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa
