DAN SMITH is Secretary General of the London-based international peacebuilding organization International Alert, and former Director of the International Peace Research Institute in Oslo. He has also held fellowships at the Norwegian Nobel Institute and Hellenic Foundation for Foreign and European Policy and was, for over a decade, the Chair of the Institute for War and Peace Reporting. He is the author of The State of the Middle East, as well as successive editions of The State of the World Atlas and The Atlas of War and Peace. At International Alert he produced the path-breaking A Climate of Conflict report on the links between climate change, peace, and war. He is regularly invited to advise governments and international organizations on policies and structures for peacebuilding, including through his membership of the Advisory Group for the UN Peacebuilding Fund, of which he was Chair until 2011. He was awarded the OBE in 2002, and blogs on international politics at www.dansmithsblog.comReview:
"The State of the World Atlas is something else - an occasion of wit and an act of subversion." New York Times "No-one wishing to keep a grip on the reality of the world should be without these books." International Herald Tribune "A super book that will not only sit on your shelf begging to be used, but will also be a good read. Its inventive brilliance deserves enormous rewards." New Scientist "Unique and uniquely beautiful...A single map here tells us more about the world today than a dozen abstracts or scholarly tomes." Los Angeles Times
