The Winds Of War, How To Turn The Doomsday Clock Back

NEW DELHI: On ‘Talking Point‘, Sundeep Waslekar, Author of ‘A World Without War: The History, Politics & Resolution Of Conflict‘, and President of the Strategic Foresight Group in conversation with StratNews Global Associate Editor Amitabh P. Revi.

Sundeep Waslekar discusses current and historical events in the light of his book that the blurb describes as moving from “examining the roots of war to suggesting a global social contract for lasting peace. Drawing from his comprehensive research in politics, technology, philosophy and history, he talks about the origins of war and weaponry, the dangers inherent in the introduction of new weapons and the chilling links between nationalism and war. He argues that war is a matter of choice and that peace is essential for human beings to realise their true potential.” He warns, “humankind cannot survive a global war involving nuclear weapons. Most people are in denial of such an existential risk because they feel it is not imminent. For them, this book serves as a wake-up call.”
