ISBN 978-0-7453-3053-2. “A User’s Guide to the Crisis of Civilization and how to save it” was written by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed and published by Pluto Press in 2010. Also see our review of the “film of the book” here. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed is the Executive Director of the London-based think tank the Institute for Policy Research and Development. His previous books include “The War on Truth” (2005) and “The London Bombings” (2006). His previous work (as this suggests) was more closely related to studying the links between Western Security forces and Islamic Terrorist groups. However Nafeez also appear in the film “Oil, Smoke and Mirrors” which covered Peak Oil and the politics of the War on Terror (tag line “there is no war on terror;only a war for oil”). Digging into the murky realities of international terrorism remains his strongest point and the rest of “crisis” is built around his latest research on this one topic.
