Everything you need to know about world issues but were too afraid to ask. Is China the next superpower? Can the West win the war on terrorism? Is the world running out of oil? What is the McDonald's Golden Arches Theory of World Peace? Is Microsoft more powerful than a nation like Australia? Why did the United States invade Iraq? Will there ever be peace in Israel and Palestine? In an increasingly complex world it's easy to feel that only the experts understand global issues - the rest of us just have to take their word for it. In 50 Things You Want to Know About World Issues, resident expert, Dr Keith Suter, cuts through the jargon and diplomatic talk to answer 50 questions you always wanted to ask about international issues. In his trademark clear, no-nonsense style, Dr Keith makes sense of even the most complex issues, so we can all get a better understanding of what's going on in the world and where Australia fits in.
