“We live in a rich world and yet increasingly people are getting caught in the poverty trap and facing real hardship and pain. We know how to solve these problems by disarmament and demilitarisation and putting human and financial resources into dealing with the real enemies of humanity poverty, unemployment, environmental crisis, etc. Vijay Mehta’s excellent book sets out the problems and solutions and challenges us all to create the political will to implement policies which will bring about real change and give hope to humanity.”–Mairead Corrigan Maguire, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate 1976

“It is about time someone exposed the nefarious activities of the military-industrial complex that is destroying the foundations of civilized human existence. It has made killing a profitable industry. This book is a must read for all peace-seekers.” –Arun Gandhi, Grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, President, Gandhi Worldwide Education Institute, Rochester, USA
