Beyond Terror

Beyond Terror: the truth about the real threats to our world
by Chris Abbot, Paul Rogers, John Sloboda (Oxford Research Group) published by Rider 2007 [isbn 978-1-84-604070-2]

This book shows clearly that international terrorism is not the single greatest threat to world security.

However many Western governments assume it is. In response their dangerous policies attempt to mantain control and keep the status quo by using overwhelming military force. This 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, marginilisation of the majority of the world, global militarisation.

Based on work done by the Oxford Research Group published 2006 as Global Responses to Global Threats:Sustainable Security for the 21st Century.
