reed elsevier and the arms trade 09.12.2005, 1:19 PM
They say that sunlight is the best disinfectant. And so I'm pointing to this upsetting story about educational publishing giant Reed Elsevier's complicity in international violence through a subsidiary (Spearhead Exhibitions) that runs one of the world's largest arms fairs. There are the beginnings of a movement for academics and others to demand that R.E. drop this sordid business.
