Special thanks to Dave Diaz (Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement, Bureau of Political Military Affairs, US State Department), Steve Priestley (Mines Advisory Group), and representatives from the German Federal Ministry of Defence and the Bundeswehr Verification Centre for their efforts in authoring the chapters.

King Safer Stockpiles ix Acknowledgements On behalf of the Small Arms Survey, we would first like to express our gratitude to the Government of Germany for its continued support of the Small Arms Survey Yearbook and other publications, including this one.

I personally would like to acknowledge the invaluable assistance of the PSSM practitioners who contributed to the making of this publication.

The project has an international staff with expertise in security studies, political science, law, economics, development studies, sociology, and criminology, and collaborates with a network of researchers, partner institutions, non-governmental organizations, and governments in more than 50 countries.

The objectives of the Small Arms Survey are: to be the principal source of public information on all aspects of small arms and armed violence; to serve as a resource centre for governments, policy-makers, researchers, and activists; to monitor national and international initiatives (governmental and nongovernmental) on small arms; to support efforts to address the effects of small arms proliferation and misuse; and to act as a clearinghouse for the sharing of information and the dissemination of best practices.

The Survey also sponsors field research and information-gathering efforts, especially in affected states and regions.

His advice is practical and to the point and covers everything from the importance of body language to how to stay ahead of the competition.
