Unpeople by Mark Curtis

Book Description

Britain is complicit in the deaths of ten million people. These are Unpeople - those whose lives are seen as expendable in the pursuit of Britain's economic and political goals. In Unpeople, Mark Curtis shows that the Blair government is deepening its support for many states promoting terrorism and, using evidence unearthed from formerly secret documents, reveals for the first time the hidden history of unethical British policies, including: support for the massacres in Iraq in 1963; the extraordinary private backing of the US in its aggression against Vietnam; support for the rise of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin; the running of a covert 'dirty war' in Yemen in the 1960s; secret campaigns with the US to overthrow the governments of Indonesia and British Guiana; the welcoming of General Pinochet's brutal coup in Chile in 1973; and much more. This explosive new book, from the author of Web of Deceit, exposes the reality of the Blair government's foreign policies since the invasion of Iraq. It discloses government documents showing that Britain's military is poised for a new phase of global intervention with the US, and reveals the extraordinary propaganda campaigns being mounted to obscure the reality of policies from the public.

Secret Affairs by Mark Curtis Secret Affairs, Paperback (March 2012)

Reveals the attempts by Britain to cultivate relations with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt after the fall of Mubarak, the military intervention on the side of Libyan rebel forces which include pro-al-Qaeda elements, and the reliance on the region's ultimate fundamentalist state, Saudi Arabia, to safeguard its interest in the Middle East.

Web of Deceit by Mark Curtis Web of Deceit, Paperback (May 2003)

Reasons that Britain is a 'rogue state', often a violator of international law and a condoner of human rights abuses, as well as a key ally of many repressive regimes. This work argues that under the Blair government, Britain has become a champion of a form of globalisation that is increasing the takeover of the global economy by big business.
