Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis 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.
