Beyond Terror: The Truth About the Real Threats to Our World

by Chris Abbott, Paul Rogers and John Sloboda
£4.99   paperback  Ebury Press (2007)

Beyond Terror: The Truth About the Real Threats to Our World by Chris Abbott, Paul Rogers and John Sloboda 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 that 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:
 
* Climate change,
* Competition over resources,
* Marginalisation of the majority of the world,
* Global militarisation.
 
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.
