Author(s): Derek J. Wilson
Third edition, originally published September 2001. "A guide to vital issues" What Derek Wilson calls the five holocausts - militarism, human oppression, economic destitution, the population explosion, environmental destruction - may seem too big, too complex, and perhaps, in the end, too frightening to grasp. Yet grasp them we must, because the time is coming when muddling through won't be enough. Here is a guide to these vital issues, distilled by Derek Wilson from his long study of the sources and his many years of thinking and writing about the future of the planet. The world won't have the will, or the means, to act in its own best interests until we as individuals decide that it must. The first step we can take is to increase our understanding and awareness of the threats we face. It is understanding and awareness of the world's best interests which lie at the heart of this book. An extremely valuable source book.
