Description

The Iraq War shows no sign of ending, NATO is progressively more mired in conflict in Afghanistan, and the al-Qaida movement has established safe havens in western Pakistan while being seen once again as a major threat.In light of this, the new Oxford Research Group international security report questions current policies and argues for the adoption of sustainable security as the underlying approach.Tackling events in chronological order over the key 2006-07 period, the report offers a clear and compelling account of a 'war on terror' that has gone wrong in every major respect and is in urgent need of a comprehensive re-thinking of the entire outlook.Comments on earlier editions of the Oxford Research Group International Security Report:"Incisive, elegant, profound: if you want to understand what happened and why, you should start here." GEORGE MONBIOT"Paul Rogers is a secular prophet for our trouble age. This analysis should be required reading in the Pentagon." DAVID LLOYN, BBC"Paul Rogers has proved himself, time and again, to be a dispassionate analyst of events in Iraq ... this is a must-read." TOM WALKER, SUNDAY TIMESshow more
