Overview

Challenges to Global Security: Geopolitics and Power in an Age of Transition by Hussein Solomon

Ours is an age of great upheaval where change sometimes appears to be the only constant. Three of the most important forces driving such change are globalization, regionalization and democratization. This substantial work makes a concerted attempt to understand these forces, and to show how they impact on the vitally important question of global security in the USA, Latin America, South Asia, South East Asia, Europe, Russia, the Middle East, and Africa. Each discourse receives substantial coverage: from economics and politics to religion, religious fundamentalism and human rights.
