About this book

Michael Dobkowski and Isidor Wallimann have written a book that, although ominous, is not a fatalistic look into what the future may hold for us in the upcoming century. It lays out the perils of not recognizing the reality of genocide or of acknowledging the full implications of warfare. Showing how scarcity and surplus populations can lead to disaster, The Coming Age of Scarcity is about evil. It tells of "ethnic cleansing and excavates the world's expanding killing fields. The writers anticipate mass death and genocide in the twenty-first century, even while trying to prevent such atrocities. Present directions indicate that population growth, land resources, energy consumption, and per-capita consumption cannot be sustained without leading to greater catastrophes. What is the solution in the face of mass death and genocide?
