CLARKE, Richard A. and EDDY, R.P.
(NY), Ecco, (2017). Clarke, head of counter-terrorism under three presidents and the special advisor for cybersecurity under G.W. Bush, has, with Eddy, taken a look back at the devastating consequences of unheeded warnings in the past (Fukushima, ISIS, the invasion of Kuwait, Hurricane Katrina, the 2008 recession, etc.) and examines what warnings were then (in 2017) going unheeded. (Most obvious in hindsight: a possible pandemic; also the consequences of climate change, AI, gene editing, the internet of everything, etc.). This copy is signed by both authors. Fine in a fine dust jacket. [#034860] $150
