That book is unique in scope, readability. and integrity. It's highly informative and explanatory.
It's written from the point of view of an American, who is fully aware that he presents the western view on world peace,
and world's conflicts: the actual and the future ones. The author's personal view as a westerner is interesting and insigthful,
however the reader needs to bear in mind that it doesn't represent any official version of the present and the future.
The book paints a sober and frequently troubling picture of human civilisations, in their struggle over domination.
In its last part there is a cautious optimism about the possibility of peaceful resolutions of the conflicts before they becomeworld wide.
The message of the author is clear and strong - a big warning before it's too late. It preaches tolerance and coexistence,
The book suggests improvements in the UN and other international institutions, as well as recommendations for new policies.
Excellent book: a landmark in political scholar-popular literature, of the secoand half of the 20 century. It's undoubtly a legacy of an highly intelligent and and widely learned scholar, and a civilised, wise and caring person.
