Summary

What horrors will the twenty-first century bring? For many, people, a clash of civilizations and a perilous return to great power rivalries are the dominant visions of things to come. Fueled by daily headlines, overwhelming majorities of people from all walks of life consider the world to be a far more chaotic, frightening, and ultimately more dangerous place than ever before, Christopher J. Fettweis argues that these impressions, however widespread, are wrong. Book jacket.
