Averting Global War examines major regional disputes and conflicts throughout the world as they impact upon both American domestic and foreign policy. These include: The ongoing ?war on terrorism?; NATO enlargement to Russian borders; US intervention in Iraq; US confrontation with Iran; the feud between Israel and the Palestinians; the widening ?zone of conflict? from Central Asia to sub-Saharan Africa; the global ramifications of North Korea?s nuclear program and China?s claims to Taiwan; Venezuela?s ?Bolivarian Revolution? and the ?war on drugs? in Latin America, the domestic socio-political effects of Latin American immigration upon the US. The book?s goal is to articulate an irenic American strategy intended to resolve, or at least transform, a number of these disputes and conflicts so as to prevent them from further ?deepening? or ?widening??and to avert the real possibility of major power confrontation involving both clandestine and overt methods of warfare.
