What every beauty queen really wants is world peace, but isn't it just a dream for bikini-clad airheads? Terrorist attacks, the war in Iraq and weapons of mass destruction make world peace seem further away than ever. How can it be achieved? In this groundbreaking and controversial new book Dan Plesch - one of the few Britons ever to provide expert evidence on military issues to the US Senate and House of Representatives - tackles the question head-on with characteristic wit and intelligence. Exposing the new military-industrial complex that has prospered under President Bush, Plesch argues that there can be no military solution to terrorism: world peace requires an economic and political revolution founded on the principles of democracy and human rights. In The Beauty Queen's Guide to World Peace he uses a wealth of historical evidence alongside economic and political theories by everyone from Karl Marx to Adam Smith and an unrivalled command of the facts about military conflict in the twenty-first century to make a powerful case against the warmongers and a provide compelling blueprint for peace.
