Abstract and Keywords
This article considers military technological change and its relation with both politics and political analysis. It shows that this relation actually represents an entwined evolution of military technology, politics, and political analysis by conducting an in-depth analysis of military technological innovation since the Second World War. It describes several ways by which weapons development interacted with politics and political analysis. These include the transformation of national and international security issues in relation to the technological arms race and weapons proliferation and political control of weapons innovation.
