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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Averting Global War is an artful and arresting defense of the need for American policy-makers to adopt meaningful and wise strategies for handling the growing number of regional problems throughout the world. In a comprehensive manner, Hall Gardner demonstrates how violence and perhaps even wars among the major power may result if the wrong approaches are taken to these growing challenges." - Robert Jackson, Author of Temptations of Power: the US in Global Politics since 9/11

"Hall Gardner zeroes in on the new world disorder, and alerts us to the geostrategic dangers inherent in our unsettled time." - Susan Eisenhower, President of The Eisenhower Group, Inc., and Chairman Emeritus, The Eisenhower Institute
