Présentation de l'éditeur

Robert Young Pelton, a professional adventurer, and his team of international war correspondents have updated this indispensable handbook for the intrepid adventurer-- a "how-to" in getting in and out of the world′s hot spots.

We are living in a dangerous world, and now more than ever people want to know what is going on where (and why). Featuring 25 countries, The World′s Most Dangerous Places, 5th Edition offers a brief up-to-the-minute history of each nation, provides tips on how to get in, out and around safely, and uncovers their dangers, from diseases, land mines, and kidnapping to mercenaries and militias. Completely revised, this edition has a number of countries who have been added to the hot list.

With firsthand accounts of breathtaking adventure in each country, the book also provides the latest indispensable information on contacts for nongovernmental and rescue organizations, environmental groups, political activists, training schools in outdoor survival, commando techniques, and other potentially life-saving advice.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Outdated but still helpful. 3 octobre 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book was a 5 star, about 15 years ago. The book has not been updated for post 9/11 so a lot of the information in it is irrelevant or has changed to another country. For instance, it's still talking about Columbia being one of the most dangerous countries and Mexico is far down on the list. The reverse is true now. It would be awesome for Mr. Pelton to update it and I would buy it again immediately. I still consider it required reading simply to get you thinking about situations if you are going abroad. My family and I life on a sailing ship and live at sea, so I take any book that can make our travels safer seriously.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 5th Edition Even Better--Valuable to Business and Government 19 juin 2003
Par Robert David STEELE Vivas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've heard Robert Young Pelton speak, and he is, if anything, even more thoughtful and provocative in person. He has written an extraordinary book that ordinary people will take to be a sensationalist travel guide, while real experts scrutinize every page for the hard truths about the real world that neither the CIA nor the media report. The 5th Edition is even better than the earlier version that I distributed to all the professional intelligence officers attending the annual Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) conference, so I am going to distribute the new improved version.
Unlike clandestine case officers and normal foreign service officers, all of them confined to capital cities and/or relying on third party reporting, Robert Young Pelton actually goes to the scene of the fighting, the scene of the butchery, the scene of the grand thefts, and unlike all these so-called authoritative sources, he actually has had eyeballs on the targets and boots in the mud.
I have learned two important lessons from this book, and from its author Robert Young Pelton:
First, trust no source that has not actually been there. He is not the first to point out that most journalists are "hotel warriors", but his veracity, courage, and insights provide compelling evidence of what journalism could be if it were done properly. Government sources are even worse--it was not until I heard him speak candidly about certain situations that I realized that most of our Embassy reporting--both secret and open--is largely worthless because it is third hand, not direct.
Second, I have learned from this book and the author that sometimes the most important reason for visiting a war zone is to learn about what is NOT happening. His accounts of Chechnya, and his personal first-hand testimony that the Russians were terrorizing their Muslims in the *absence* of any uprising or provocation, are very disturbing. His books offers other accounts of internal terrorism that are being officially ignored by the U.S. Government, and I am most impressed by the value of his work as an alternative source of "national intelligence" and "ground truth".
There are a number of very important works now available to the public on the major threats to any country's national security, and most of them are as unconventional as this one--Laurie Garrett on public health, Marq de Villiers on Water, Joe Thorton on chlorine-based industry and the environment--and some, like Robert D. Kaplan's books on his personal travels, are moving and inspiring reflections on reality as few in the Western world could understand it--but Robert Young Pelton is in my own mind the most structured, the most competent, the most truthful, and hence the most valuable reporter of fact on the world's most dangerous places.
What most readers may not realize until they read this book is that one does not have to travel to these places to be threatened by them--what is happening there today, and what the U.S. government does or does not do about developments in these places, today, will haunt this generation and many generations to follow. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who cares to contemplate the real world right now.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Better than I expected, fascinating reading 29 novembre 2006

When I first picked up the book, I thought it would be pretty dry. I started to read it region by region and got more interested with every page. I love the authors style and candor, very entertaining. It is pretty amazing that the author has survived all of the dangerous places he has written about without at least one nutjob killing him. Hope he survives to write another couple of editions, I'll buy them too.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 So outdated! 30 août 2014
Par pope47 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
There's a lot of interesting information in this hefty volume, and it's crisply and wittily written; but as another reviewer has noted it's terribly outdated. The copyright is 2003. So much has changed in the world in eleven years....Colombia is hardly a 5-star country in 2014, and Mexico and Syria aren't even given a chapter. Amazon should state a caveat that although this is the "revised 5th edition" it is not a current report on the state of the world.
