In his new book Beyond the World of War, he focuses on war and its consequences, examining the context of war, the military industrial complex, the colonial legacy and the economic dividend of war. Peadar will explore and expand upon some of the human stories he has encountered along the way, with Clare Daly MEP who wrote the foreword for the book. Accompanying publication of the book is an Irish Aid supported exhibition of images that capture the people and places visited by the What in the World? programme over the years.
