In this candid and sobering account, former Russian premier Yevgeny M. Primakov considers the threats posed by independent terrorist organizations to the security of the global community.


Yevgeny M. Primakov served as Russian premier from 1998 to 1999, amid Russia's most severe economic crisis since the collapse of the Soviet Union. He served previously as foreign minister, head of the Foreign Intelligence Service, and head of the Central Intelligence Service. Henry A. Kissinger is chairman of Kissinger Associates, Inc., an international consulting firm. He was Secretary of State from 1973 to 1977, serving under Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. He also served as Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs from 1969 to 1975.


"... a candid, sobering account of the menacing threat to international security posed by disparate terrorist organizations." -- Parameters, 12/1/2004 "Primakov's book will prove essential reading to academics and political planners alike, seeking to understand from within the nature of contemporary Russian perspectives on the radically alterted international security environment and to gain insight into Russia's views on terrorism in the twenty-first century." --Roger N. McDermott, University of Kent at Canterbury, The Slavonic and East European Review, 7/1/2005 "offers a sobering account of the Russian perspective on the state of terrorism in the world today while addressing the global challenges we face as terrorism evolves in the wake of recent events. In 'A World Challenged,' Primakov draws on a wealth of knowledge and experience to present an alternate view of the war on terrorism, and he does so with remarkable frankness and clarity of thought. His opinions, often controversial yet universally intriguing, are timely and relevant to our efforts to stem the tide of violence that continues to put innocent lives at risk across the world...A World Challenged is a candid work by an intriguing and compelling author...a must-read for anyone concerned with the future of global security." --Steve Leonard, Military Review
