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."
