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

In the same year that 2500 Americans died in the twin towers attack, 3500 US citizens died of malnutrition, 14000 died from HIV/AIDS, 62000 died from pneumonia and 700000 died of heart disease.  Is international terrorism really the greatest threat to world security?

This is the question asked and answered by Abbott, Rogers and Sloboda in their 2007 book by the title above.  Small, concise yet packing a great statistical punch, the Oxford Research Group have produced a classic for anyone interested in the United States 'War on Terror'.

A must-read for government and quite frankly anyone who values the truth, the ORG write of the vast impact of climate change, the rich-poor divide and global militarisation on the world's population and how ignoring these factors to focus on extremism will actually be detrimental to all.

Well said, much needed and ignored at your peril...
