About the Book

This volume discusses the pre-Covid pandemic political actions and inactions that led to the instability and desperate migrations from many developing nations towards safety or livelihood elsewhere even as ways to prevent or alter such condition is inferred towards averting national crumple at the next like or perhaps worse than the Covid pandemic, extreme climate change events, or sudden shocks from likes of Russia-Ukraine war. Though the retrospection may annoy many past and present developing nations’ leaders, the goal is not to discredit their earnest efforts but to cause pointed actions against critical issues for the safety, endurance and prosperity of the nations. Expositions in this volume should attract politicians to issue-based politics against politics of personal attacks and empty rhetoric; the series are good supplementary reading for good governance advocates, the politically minded, students of Politics, Government, Modern History, International Studies, Crimes Prevention and Control; these segments should read the volume.
