About this title

Synopsis:

Alvin, a lawyer who writes on arms control issues, takes an around-the-world tour visiting historical places of importance in human history. For the first time he can experience the planet as a whole seeing the continents unfold below while flying west on daytime flights, bringing him to a higher consciousness of the oneness of humanity. The tour group starts in Japan visiting the Yasukuni Shrine and the A-Bomb Peace Park in Hiroshima and becomes aware of the devastating destruction caused by mankind in wars, and similarly in China, Mongolia, and the Middle East. While visiting in Istanbul, Alvin witnesses another tour guest who works for a U.S. nuclear weapons contractor turn over a gold-seal folder for classified material to shadowy Islamic figures. He suspects that the classified material may enable a terrorist group to attack a NATO airbase in Turkey where hundreds of operational nuclear weapons are stored. Will mankind take the actions needed to head off this nightmare scenario of nuclear weapons diversion? Join Alvin in this entertaining travel adventure to find out if humans have the wherewithal to survive on Planet Earth. "Can humans overcome the threat of nuclear weapons proliferation and other global threats to our survival? Narrated from an 'alien' viewpoint, this book takes a hard look at the scientific and historical facts through a story that is both entertaining and hopeful. You too will 'try to see the whole as one'" - Pat Takahashi, author of Simple Solutions for Planet Earth and Simple Solutions for Humanity.
