Praise for 'Earth Wars'

 "A brilliant analysis of how the world's geopolitics will be shaped by the global race for four strategic resources: food, water, energy and metals. Geoff Hiscock is at his best in Earth Wars!"
    - Jagdish N. Sheth, Charles H. Kellstadt Professor of Marketing, Goizueta Business School, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A.
 
    "The near simultaneous development and rising aspirations of the world's only two billion-plus societies has awoken us to the limits of the earth. The scale of demand from China and India for food, water, energy and minerals has already reshaped the global economy         and strategic landscape and will drive even more dramatic change in the years ahead. This book presents an accessible map of these developments, combining breadth with a careful eye to detail, while avoiding being bogged down in statistics. Earth Wars is essential reading for anyone interested in how the twenty-first century will unfold, and how this will affect peace and conflict, economics and societies."
    - Dr Michael Wesley, Executive Director, Lowy Institute for International Policy, Sydney, Australia.
 
    "In the first three decades of the 21st Century, there's no more important story than the battle for global resources and Geoffrey Hiscock's analysis is a must-read for all of us."
    - Professor Sree Sreenivasan, Columbia Journalism School and co-founder, SAJA, South Asian Journalists Association, New York.
