Grave New World
Security Challenges in the 21st Century
The challenges and complexities might seem insurmountable but the first step in solving problems is recognizing that they exist. Grave New World provides an eye-opening assessment of the prospects for peace and security in the 21st century.
Michael E. Brown frames these issues in his Introduction, "Security Challenges in the 21st Century;" and in his summation, "Security Problems and Security Policy in a Grave New World."
About the Author
"Brown and his knowledgeable contributors present a comprehensive, multifaceted, up-to-date tour of today's international security challenges, ranging from weapons of mass destruction to transnational crime—and everything in between."—Jack Snyder, Robert and Renée Belfer Professor of International Relations, Columbia University
"Grave New World is a useful—and welcome—reminder of the many security challenges confronting all of us aside from terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. And it underscores the need for nations to work together to meet the challenges we all face."—Ivo Daalder, Brookings Institution
"It has become all too common for Americans to think the U.S. now faces a single security challenge—terrorism. This fascinating and comprehensive overview of the wide range of security issues confronting the world makes clear that the picture is actually far more complex. The chapters on demographics, media and terrorism alone are worth the price of admission."—Michael J. Mazarr, professor of national security strategy, U.S. National War College
"Michael Brown has pulled together a volume that thoughtfully and comprehensively surveys the security challenges of the 21st century. Those seeking an overview of the new security agenda would do well to start with this book."—Steven Miller, director, International Security Program, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
