Beyond Terror: The Truth about the Real Threats to Our World
Chris Abbott, Paul Rogers and John Sloboda (Rider, 2007)
Is international terrorism really the single greatest threat to world security?
Since the 9/11 attacks, many Western governments assume terrorism to be the greatest threat we face. In response, their dangerous policies attempt to maintain control and keep the status quo by using overwhelming military force. This important book shows why this approach has been such a failure, and how it distracts us from other, much greater, threats:
Unless urgent, coordinated action is taken in the next 5-10 years on all these issues it will be almost impossible to avoid the earth becoming a highly unstable place by the middle years of this century. Beyond terror offers an alternative path for politicians, journalists and concerned citizens alike.
Available in paperback and ePub/Kindle. Published in English (Rider Books), Portuguese (Editorial Presença), Dutch (A.W. Bruna), German (Edition Nautilus), Spanish (Los Libros del Lince) and Catalan.
"This brilliant and lucid book is the single most important contribution to understanding and coping with the future that I have ever read."
