This book takes a fresh and critical look at the leading sources of global risk - terrorism, disease, crime, poverty, environmental damage and others - and sets out a practical way to respond far better than we have to each risk area.Drawing from his state-of-the-art knowledge of global strategy as applied in the business world, the author provides analysis, insight, realistic strategies, and hope for a better way forward. His foresight has already been demonstrated. Early in the year 2000, he wrote: "Sadly, the history of mass terrorism is just about to be written. ... Even the US is no longer a safe haven from foreign or local terrorists. ... US policing has done little to limit the operations of terrorist Osama bin Laden. ... The vulnerability of large government and civilian buildings and even military targets has also contributed to an increase in the scale of potential harm."Without a more informed set of strategies and better global leadership, the catastrophe of 9/11 will only be a forerunner of many more disasters in the future. We can do much better. This important book shows us how.
