SAVAGE CENTURY By Therese Delpech Reviewed by Gregory Jarosch Reader’s corner RESOURCES FOR PROJECT MANAGERS THIS ENGLISH TRANSL ATION of a French publication is a grand sweeping attempt to rationalise knock-on impacts of significant recent historical events, and see whether lessons of the past transition to actions in the future. The author has engaged in a relatively complex analysis of mainly 20th century conflicts and forces of change to explore likely future security challenges for the world. Delpech draws lines of reasoning from past to present events, taking readers through escalating manmade disasters with potential future impacts (ie we are still experiencing the legacy of WWII). Delpech then looks behind the slogans of globalism, revolutionary change, collective security, technological advances and political maturity to give readers cause for concern at leadership worldwide and what lies ahead. While key players in this journey of barbarism tend to be the dominant military and economic powers of the northern hemisphere, the ‘shock waves’ are felt around the world. Covering a period from 1905 to the present, the book portrays humans as forgetful and complacent, with the passage of time resulting in swings from exaltation to desperation when meeting future challenges. Published by United Book Press and available from Defence Library Service. LIBRARY 40 Project Manager
