In 2002, Scott Ritter told the world that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction. The Bush administration ignored him, and led us into a disastrous war on false pretenses. In 2006, he said claims of an Iranian weapons program were greatly exaggerated. A recent National Intelligence Estimate corroborated his claims. Now, Ritter tells us where the real threats lie--and provides a sometimes shocking and always sobering analysis of deteriorating world order.

In "Dangerous Ground," Ritter chronicles his visits to the hot zones of the twenty-first century--Asia, the Middle East, and the former Soviet Union. He introduces us to the arms dealers, the corrupt government officials, and intelligence operatives who are making the world an unsafe place to live. These encounters underline Ritter's core thesis--that arms control will be the issue of the twenty-first century.

"Dangerous Ground" is based on more than a decade of Ritter's experience analyzing intelligence risks. He is able to pinpoint the major challenges to international security in the post-Bush era, and he presents a blueprint for confronting them. He offers a series of concrete proposals--ranging from the creation of an international corps of weapons inspectors under the aegis of the United Nations to a call for the U.S. to abandon the unilateralist actions of the Bush years--that any incoming administration would be wise to heed.
