Description - As Used On the Famous Nelson Mandela by Mark Thomas

Mark Thomas is one of the UK's most effective and best-known political activists, as well as being a highly successful stand-up comedian. His show, 'The Mark Thomas Product?, ran for six highly acclaimed series on Channel Four. Amazingly, this is his first book.AS USED ON THE FAMOUS NELSON MANDELA is a deeply funny, deeply disturbing account of Mark's rampage through the arms trade. Under a fairly flimsy disguise and with the use of some worryingly poor accents, Mark set off on a journey of discovery in the company of arms dealers, torture victims, politicians, cops, crusties and geeks. The result is a shockingly entertaining read.Embedded within the sharpness of his humour is the truth of an industry fraught with loopholes, complacency and greed; that allows corrupt regimes to kill, maim and displace, but whose deals are often subsidised by the British taxpayer.Hard-hitting, laugh-out-loud funny and extremely unsettling, AS USED ON THE FAMOUS NELSON MANDELA is never anything less than compulsive.
