Professor Amitai Etzioni discusses his new book “Hot Spots”, which surveys current and future global challenges. These various areas of concern around the world, or ‘hot spots’, raise important questions for international politics and for our understanding of the role of force in global affairs. Etzioni argues that these different ‘hot spots’ are connected in ways that are not immediately apparent, and the connected nature of these challenges both necessitates and creates an opportunity for a comprehensive geopolitical strategy to confront them. Book topics include the rise of China, the instability of Pakistan, the implications of the Arab Spring, the intervention in Libya and its bearings on the emerging doctrine of Responsibility to Protect, the problems of nuclear proliferation, the future of the EU, and the complexities of the new confrontation with international terrorism.
