Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe optimism that arrived at the end of the cold war and marked the turn of the millennium was shattered by September 11. In the aftermath of that event it is not unwarranted pessimism that lines the pages of "Grave New World, it is unavoidable reality. Terrorism is but one aspect of many other wider concerns for national and international security, and the contributors to this volume not only warn us, but reward us as well with the clarity of their views into--and possible solutions for--a difficult, complicated future. They speak convincingly of the numerous military and nonmilitary challenges that create security problems--whether those are interstate, intrastate, or transnational--many of which are being dangerously overlooked in public policy debates. The challenges and complexities might seem insurmountable but the first step in solving problems is recognizing that they exist. "Grave New World provides and eye opening assessment of the prospects for peace and security in the 21st century.

Pressestimmen"It has become all to common for Americans to think the U.S. now faces a single security challenge--terrorism. This fascinating and comprehensive overview of the wide range of security issues confronting the world makes clear that the picture is actually far more complex. The chapters on demographics, media, and terrorism alone are worth the price of admission."
