Koko: Books on Early Warning & Prevention

Book Lists

Early Warning is nice.  Honest politicians willing to listen and learn is even nicer.  We conclude that early warning must be very public and very understandable to the public at large.  The challenge for Early Warning is to achieve coherence–no one cares about single issue early warning.  The acme of skill is to achieve M4IS2 Early Warning–all threats, all policies, all true costs, “in your face.”
