6 Nightmares

Real Threats in a Dangerous World and How America Can Meet Them
By Anthony Lake (Electronic Book, 2000)
Though we live in a time of relative peace and prosperity, serious threats to our national security lie just beyond the horizon. Threats beyond any the United States has faced before, or possibly even imagined. Should these situations become real, will our government be ready?

In "Six Nightmares," former National Security Advisor Anthony Lake draws on his experience coordinating foreign policy to examine six major threats to the security and well-being of American citizens. Lake details scenarios that could arise from global terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, international crime, new forms of warfare, and other serious risks to our security, and shows how it is all too plausible that these threats could become real. He analyzes what the government is doing to prepare for these potential disasters, and the alarming ways in which we aren't yet ready to face them.

At once strategic and personal, "Six Nightmares" is no conventional foreign policy book, but an important warning about the future dangers and a riveting memoir of the past.
