What every beauty queen really wants is world peace, but isn't that just a dream? Terrorist attacks, the war in Iraq and wapons of mass destruction make peace seem further away then ever. How can it be achieved? In this ground-breaking and controversial new book Dan Plesch tackles the question head-on with characteristic wit and intelligence. Exposing the naive incompetence of the Bush administration and the destructive greed of global corporations, Plesch argues that there can be no military solution to terrorism and demonstrates that world peace is practical within a generation. Using a wealth of historical evidence, economic and political theories by everyone from Adam Smith to Churchill and Roosevelt and an unrivalled command of the facts about military conflict in the 21st century, he constructs a powerful case against the warmongers and a compelling blueprint for peace.
