A World At Risk
  • by Jochanan Stenesh
    • Merriam Press Fiction Series
    • First Edition 2017
    • 148 6x9-inch pages
Albert Einstein is alleged to have said “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” Thankfully, a catastrophic World War III has not broken out so far. However, few would disagree that the danger of it erupting has grown with the advent of the 21st century.

This book of political fiction takes the reader into an imagined future by describing what might happen in the world in the next two decades.

Specifically, the future is viewed via twenty-one newspaper dispatches that cover flash points and controversial issues around the globe, over the period 2020 - 2040.

The author is Professor of Chemistry, Emeritus, at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  He holds a Ph.D. degree in biochemistry from the University of California at Berkeley, and has had a distinguished career of teaching, research, and publishing of scientific papers and books.  In A World At Risk he turns his attention to a subject that transcends the world of science.
