Contents Notes
Security concerns remain high on the world's agenda. In this year's annual report, Worldwatch researchers explore underlying sources of global insecurity including poverty, infectious disease, environmental degradation, and rising competition over oil and other resources. Find out [in this book] why terrorism is just symptomatic of a far broader set of complex problems that require more than a military response. This work presents a collection of essays that examine the global security environment in 2005, and posit an argument that a key component in lasting safety lies with policy changes such as moving away from dependence on oil, managing water conflicts, containing infectious diseases, and moving toward global disarmanment.
