About the author:
Eric LaMont Gregory is an Oxford-educated diplomat, scientist and author, who for more than four decades operated in the highly secretive corridors of the upper chambers of international power and intrigue.
The Ultimate Vanishing Act, is a guided tour into current world events and in particular provides critical background into contemporary Muslim affairs, from the perspective of one who has been an eye-witness to the relentless ascent of radical Islam as the major voice within the Islamic community today. Without a basic understanding of the driving force behind the use of violence to draw attention to Muslim concerns, it is near impossible to understand why violence was chosen by radical Muslims as the principal means of getting the rest of the world's attention.
Well, they have our attention now, and still few outside the Islamic world can understand why it was necessary to use such extreme measures to get us, the non-Muslim world, to listen.
And yet, how we respond, now that the Muslim world has our attention, will largely determine world security for the foreseeable future.
Eric LaMont Gregory is also the author of the soon to be released book, Uncommon Ground: Understanding Radical Islam, made easy, which reveals how different the Middle East, Central, South and South East Asia, North Africa, Europe as well as the Americas would be today, had it not been for some rather monumental errors emanating not only from Washington, London, Paris, Berlin, Brussels and other European capitals, but also from Moscow, Beijing as well as Tokyo and New Delhi.
The Ultimate Vanishing Act and Understanding Radical Islam, are must read books for anyone who wants to understand current world events, and the onset and the assiduous ascent of radical Islamic terrorism and insurgency on a global scale.
Eric LaMont Gregory is one of the most influential commentators of the 21st century, and his books are undeniably informative and most timely contributions to world security ...
St Albert, Alberta, 10 February 2016 (Newswire) -
The Ultimate Vanishing Act is a rare piece of literature, it is also a timely contribution to world security.
How different the world might be today had the British realized that they did not need to propel the ultra-fundamentalist Sunni Islam sect, the Wahhabi, to power, in order to establish the Saudi kingdom. Or, when Eisenhower was inform of the first international Jihad conference in Cairo in 1957, and of that assembly's declaration of war against the United States, the activities of Sayyid Qutb, and the Muslim Brotherhood, he had not dismissed it as the ramblings of a few fanatics.
Perhaps, Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser, might reconsider his 1998 remarks when he was asked … do you regret having supported Islamic fundamentalism, having given arms and advice to future terrorists?
Brzezinski's answer is revealing:
What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban and some stirred-up Muslims or the collapse of the Soviet empire? (Interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski, Le Nouvel Observateur, Paris, 1998).
Unfortunately, as the author makes one painfully aware, to this day all too many world leaders still harbor the opinion that we are dealing with no more than some stirred-up Muslims. However, as this book attempts to make evident, the advent of the Taliban and radical Islam is at least as important to world history as the collapse of the Soviet Union. And, the challenge to world security that indiscriminate attacks on civilians present is no less formidable.
Gregory's book is an important contribution to an understanding of current world events. Kobobooks.com has made the first chapter of the book available to read for free. The reader will be compelled to read further.
The Ultimate Vanishing Act does not just provide one of the most probing insights into the shortcomings of past policies towards the Arab and Muslim world, but it also lays out a rational plan to counter radical Islamic terrorism.
A plan structured so brilliantly that its adoption is inevitable as soon as those on the receiving end of terror come out of the darkness of tit-for-tat reactions, and needless curtailments of the rights of their own citizens in the name of security, and realize that we will not conquer radical Islamic terrorism by force alone.
Not every government and society has miscalculated the breadth and depth of the challenge that Islamic terrorism poses, and as this book points out, those who have approached this problem with the knowledge required are achieving success, but those governments are too few and too far between. China, although there are still some rather outwardly intractable problems with their approach, stood alone as one of the major powers in having adopted a working strategy to coexist with Islamic culture, and with the election of Trudeau in Canada, there are now two nations that are having success that has the wherewithal to stand the test of time.
It is difficult, without hyperbole, to state just how important a contribution The Ultimate Vanishing Act makes to world security. That judgment the reader ultimately will have to make for themselves.
About the author:
Eric LaMont Gregory is a world-class scientist as well as an acknowledged international diplomat.
Eric LaMont Gregory, MSc Oxon, received his master's degree from the prestigious Faculty Board of Clinical Medicine, Green College, Oxford University. He is credited with unraveling the intricacies of blood flow in the subcutaneous fatty tissue of critically-ill preterm newborn babies. A life-saving discovery.
Part of his work in international health care led to his development of an innumerate thermometer. This thermometer reads the temperature of a person by using a color code in addition to numbers. Gregory realized that there are many people on this planet that do not understand numbers and that the use of traditional thermometers to monitor a newborn baby's temperature, which is crucial to their well-being, was hampering the ability to teach life-saving interventions.
The innumerate thermometer helped address that long-standing problem. The core body of knowledge behind Gregory's expertise, the maintenance of homeostasis in new newborn babies, especially those that present critically ill, is energy exchange. To maintain a baby, or any living being in a state balance with its environment, is a factor of both the endogenous heat production of the baby and its overall energy exchange with its immediate environment.
That knowledge led the author into other areas of life saving scientific inquiry such as the development of energy-absorbing (phase change) body armour, and work on the control of fire at the nano-technological level that will change our understanding such endeavors as firefighting. This brief introduction helps to explain this medical scientist's research work in particle and nuclear physics.
Gregory has been the subject of numerous documentaries concerning his research work at Oxford University in medicine, emerging technologies as well as his forays into post-war and post-disaster reconstruction initiatives.
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) programme Horizon - Exodus - documented his effort to spearhead needed assistance to the millions who fled Rwanda and in the aftermath of the genocide crisis.
Gregory served four American administrations in addition to other heads of state. His international career began in the Middle East in the 1960's. And, over the next 40-plus years, he traveled to over 100 countries. Gregory often took part in discussions in the Presidential Palace, while working in association with the Political Section of the American Embassy in London, England.
In the late 1990's, Prime Minister Tony Blair gave Gregory an opportunity, over an Easter holiday break, to put on his fax machine at 10 Downing Street a plan to end the hostilities in The Sudan. That plan called for the partition of The Sudan into a north and a south. It would however, take nearly 14 years and the untold suffering of millions before the partition plan was implemented, properly.
Gregory was in Bosnia during the war; in the 1980’s, he conducted research with Dr. Li, of the University of Beijing, Department of Paediatrics, while serving as a consultant to the Maternal and Newborn Care Unit of the World Health Organization (WHO) based in Geneva, Switzerland.
This scientist, author and diplomat was in Honduras after Hurricane Mitch as well as Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua during the Contra death squad era. Gregory witnessed two famines in Ethiopia, conflicts in North, East, South and West Africa, as well as in the Middle East, the Americas, and Central, South, and East Asia.
Shortly after 9/11, he went on mission to Afghanistan; Gregory intervened in the Kurdish uprising just before the sunset on the 20th century and made great efforts to bring the 35-year-old war in Angola to a peaceful and successful end at the dawn of the 21st century.
Eric LaMont Gregory has seen it all.
As a citizen of the world, Gregory is unswerving in his assessment of the way America (the West) carries out emergency humanitarian relief operations. He suggests that while the goodwill of the American people, which is so often a symbol of the largess of rich nations, plays out on the world stage, all too often, we are making enemies, not friends.
To address the problems he has witnessed over his distinguished career, Gregory plans to be a candidate for president of the United States in 2020, running on a platform which suggests that there is nothing we cannot discuss to build an America that is secure, with workable relations, if not at peace within our borders as well as with its worldwide neighbors, and in which economic security is a reality for all.
His book, The Ultimate Vanishing Act, is an authoritative account of contemporary diplomacy as well as cutting-edge science. For example, the author delves into the work that China, India and others have undertaken in the game-changing balance of power world of weaponized nanotechnology.
The book provides an eye-opening look into American domestic as well as foreign policy and how past decisions are today's realities, and how the decisions made today influence the forces that will propel America, and by implication the world community, into a very very uncertain future.
The Ultimate Vanishing Act is undeniably informative. And, it is suggested that since this book will affect how people vote in the presidential election of 2016. This election will be determined largely by those who have and have not read it.
“Detailed, revealing, charming, funny, witty, compassionate, sensitive, adventurous, and seductive.”
