'Every so often an academic book comes along which is not only powerfully analytical and deeply informative but also encapsulates the author's lifetime research interests. Authored by one of the UK's most eminent economists, Keith Hartley's latest book on the aerospace industry offers the reader an authoritative and fascinating insight in to a global industry of immense economic and strategic importance. This book will be essential reading for academic scholars, government policy-makers and aerospace industry practitioners alike.' -- Derek Braddon, UWE, Bristol, UK 'This is an important book about an important industry. Aerospace is a highly political and politicised industry that has often seemed immune to normal commercial practices;. Professor Hartley has turned powerful set of economic tools on the sector and calls into question some of the facile arguments that have often been used to justify government support for some economically dubious projects. He is especially forthright on the problematic area of military aerospace collaboration in Europe.' -- Keith Hayward, Head of Research, Royal Aeronautical Society, UK 'This is the definitive book on the political economy of the aerospace industry by the world's leading scholar on the subject. This is a must read for anyone studying defence economics or who is interested in the aerospace industry. It is clear, concise, and informative.' -- Todd Sandler, University of Texas at Dallas, US 'Hartley's book is a major contribution to the field of political economy on the one hand and a great collection of facts and figures on the aerospace industry on the other. The level of detail in the case studies and the breadth and depth of background information gives the reader a fantastic impression of the crucial forces at work and really supports the understanding of the aerospace industry. . .The richness of detailed understanding the book provides about the aerospace industry is not only of value when focusing on governmental interaction patterns and analyzing the defense side of the industry. It opens up various possibilities. This makes the book a must-read for all interested readers within the aerospace industry, for defense economists as well as for researchers of other scientific fields discussing the aerospace industry. ' -- Daniel Guffarth, Journal of Evolutionary Economics
