Having read ‘Unpeople’ by the same author about a year ago, I had an idea of what to expect from this book – impressive investigative journalism centering on the terrifying things going on in our own government that go largely unnoticed / uncommented on by the mainstream media and people in general.
As with ‘Unpeople’ (which is referred to occassionally), Curtis uses his investigative prowess to search through recently published archives revealing a long history of British control and manipulation (read: FUCKING) of various countries, as well as a history of siding with the repressive, aggressive regimes in order to maintain the status quo.
Whilst I was already aware of some of the support for people like Saddam Hussein back in the day, there are many things raised that I knew precisely nothing of.
At times scary to find out such things about the people in control of your country but also extremely interesting. I would suggest everyone do a couple of things:
* Read this book
* Help me in the overthrow of elite government in our country… 🙂
