For all those who want to understand the world we live in, Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed’s new book “A User’s Guide to the Crisis of Civilization: And How to Save It’ is a must read. Ahmed explores a comprehensive review of global issues and provides a stark warning of the consequences of failing to take a broad view of the problems facing the world and shows how catastrophe can be avoided.
“ [Ahmed’s] arguments are in the main forceful and well-sourced, with particularly good sections on agribusiness, US policies of ‘energy security’, and what he terms the ‘securitisation’ of ordinary life by Western governments.”
Rt. Hon. Michael Meacher MP, UK Minister of State for the Environment (1997-2003)
“This is an important book. There has been much discussion already about climate change, peak oil, the cost of food and overpopulation, the global financial crisis busting neoliberal capitalism, the rise of violent extremism, and the containment of the so-called war on terror. But this is the first book to systematically explore their interconnections and place them within a single comprehensive narrative. That makes it a very worthwhile read for policy-makers everywhere.”

“And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! Cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper.”
