Foreword by

former United Nations Asst. Secretary-General


      Clarity Press is pleased to announce the publication of  THE GLOBALIZATION OF NATO by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya,  a  brilliant, detailed and comprehensive analysis of the new NATO, risen from the ashes of the Cold War to become a primary threat to world peace   .  

Spawned by the Cold War, NATO’s existence was justified by purported Soviet threats to Western Europe. That raison d’être is long gone with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. Still NATO has globalized relentlessly, moving from defensive to offensive under pretexts of humanitarianism, starting with Yugoslavia, then East Africa, Afghanistan, and most recently Libya, acting as an arm of the Pentagon.

The danger to global equilibrium is a growing NATO being expanded further by American and British ambitions into a monster military force of world proportions, way beyond any Atlantic or European alliance. NATO expansion, intrusive military hardware, such as cyber technology/interference and the murderous capacity of drones is threatening North/South peace. The creeping NATO expansion into Asia, the attempt to surround Russia, China and others can only end badly for the billions of human beings involved.

The recent mini-US occupation of Australia, the interference in the ASEAN countries by US arms dealers and naval forces, the menacing presence of US aircraft carriers in the Indian Ocean, the South China Sea and the Strait of Malacca should remind historians of just why the Japanese considered it necessary to attack Pearl Harbor to end the US naval strangle hold imposed upon them.NATO as it expands today is absolutely not what the world of struggling economies and deprived populations require.

Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya is an interdisciplinary
sociologist, award-winning author, and noted
geopolitical analyst. He is a researcher at the Centre for Research on Globalization in Montréal, Canada, an expert contributor at the Strategic Cultural Foundation in Moscow, Russia, and a member of the Scientific Committee of Geopolitica, a peer-reviewed journal of
geopolitics in Italy.

His writing has been translated into more than twenty languages including German, Russian, Turkish, Portuguese, Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese. In 2011, Nazemroaya’s work on NATO was archived by the military alliance’s own Multimedia Library in Brussels under the “NATO and Libya – Special Focus” annals, a
collection of articles by leading international experts with their analysis on the war in Libya.

In 2011, he was awarded the prestigious First National Prize of the Mexican Press Club for his work in international investigative journalism.

      "Nazemroaya's book is a must-read for any European or other NATO state citizen who wants to understand the danger the American-driven Alliance presents to world harmony and peace. I would hope that having done so, the reader would accept appropriate responsibility for actively pursuing ways to terminate this war machine that seeks out opportunities for warfare for all the wrong reasons. . . Reading this book, may be the first step to finding ourselves before it is too late."   

 From the Foreword 
by Denis J. Halliday, former United Nations Assistant Secretary-General  

The Globalization of NATO by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya is simply magnificent, erudite and devoid of the ethnocentrism to which one
has become so accustomed from Western authors. The book deals with what doubtless are the most important and relevant issues of the day for all those committed to saving life and protecting Mother Earth from rampant human irresponsibility and crime. There is no other book that, at this particular time, I would most heartily endorse. I think Africans, Near Eastern peoples, Iranians, Russians, Chinese, Asians and Europeans generally and all the progressive Latin American countries of today will find a much needed reinforcement and support for their peaceful ideals in this
excellent must-read book.”

Foreign Minister of Nicaragua (1979-1990) and President of the 63rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly (2008-2009): Managua, Nicaragua.

"Nazemroaya’s book, in addition to reminding us that the role of the United Nations has been confiscated by NATO, elaborates the danger that the North Atlantic Treaty represents to world peace."

–JOSÉ L. GÓMEZ DEL PRADO, Former Chairman,
UN Working Group on the Use of Mercenaries

"This book is a must read for those committed to reversing the tide of war and imperial conquest by the world’s foremost military machine."

Professor Emeritus, Univ. Ottawa

"I hope this book will be read by very, very many who can turn this morbid fascination with violence into constructive conflict resolution." 

Professor Emeritus, Peace Studies and Sociology, University of Oslo

"[Nazemroaya] is one of the prescient thinkers and writers of contemporary times who deserves to be read and acted upon by people with a conscience and concern for humanity’s future."

Admiral and former Chief of the Naval Staff of India

"What amazes many of us in other parts of the world are his seemingly limitless depth, breadth and the thoroughness of his knowledge"

–KIYUL CHUNG, Editor-in Chief of The 4th Media and Visiting Professor, Tsinghua University, Beijing.
