About the book:

From high-tech terrorism at home to political instability abroad, the United States cannot afford to be lax about its security in today's world. In this book, former National Security Advisor, Anthony Lake, examines six very real scenarios - each one a threat to America's safety - and lays out what steps can be taken to prevent them. Is the United States prepared to counter sophisticated cyberterrorists? How do they prevent peacekeeping operations from spiralling out of control and turning into wars? With years of experience on the front lines of American foreign policy, Lake predicts the regions that will likely be tomorrow's Balkans (Indonesia, Colombia and the Caspian Sea) and analyzes America's level of preparedness in the event of biological or chemical terrorism (which is, in fact, surprisingly low). Not just another foreign policy book, the author aims to reveal the threats that Americans may face tomorrow and show what can be done to avoid them today.
