Web of Deceipt: Britain's Real Role in the World, Mark Curtis
8 Mark Curtis Web of Deceipt: Britain's Real Role in the World
Vintage 233028 Great Britain 2003 0099448394 / 9780099448396 Softcover Good Condition With a foreword by John Pilger. In his explosive new book, Mark Curtis reveals a new picture of Britain's role in the world since 1945 and in the 'war against terrorism' by offering a comprehensive critique of the Blair government's foreign policy. Curtis argues that Britain is an 'outlaw state', often a violator of international law and ally of many repressive regimes. He reasons not only that Britain's foreign policies are generally unethical but that they are also making the world more dangerous and unequal. The Web of Deceit describes the staggering gulf that has arisen between New Labour's professed commitment to upholding ethical values and the reality of current policies. It outlines the new phase in global intervention, the immorality of British policy in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Iraq and Indonesia and support for repressive governments in Israel, Russia, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Curtis also reveals Britain's acquiescence in the Rwanda genocide and economic policies in the World Trade Organisation that are increasing poverty and inequality around the world. Drawing on formerly secret government files, the book also shows British complicity in the slaughter of a million people in Indonesia in 1965; the depopulation of the island of Diego Garcia; the overthrow of governments in Iran and British Guiana; repressive colonial policies in Kenya, Malaya and Oman; and much more. 512 pages. Foxing to endpapers and page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Politics; Politics & Government; World Affairs::Current Events. ISBN: 0099448394.

Crunch Time, Mike Hanley & Adrian Monck
9 Mike Hanley & Adrian Monck Crunch Time
Allen & Unwin 234102 Australia 2004 1741143403 / 9781741143409 Softcover Good Condition Crossing lines of economics, politics, and family, this guide to 21st-century life offers new ways of engaging with the challenges of living in this expansive time. The dilemmas the book deals with are not only complex and systemic but also have far-reaching consequences for subsequent generations. Issues tackled include money and work, the environment, democracy, corporate power, and globalization. Intelligent without being alienating and credible without being academic, the text explores these issues and looks at their practical implications and productive solutions. Readers can move past worrying about the state of the world and into having concrete answers and implementable strategies for overcoming seemingly insurmountable personal obstacles. For all those who believe that living well in this century necessarily means being accountable to the next, this helpful book gives readers the tools to meet the challenges they face in a manner that can make the world a better place. 248 pages.

Each of her columns inspired letters and questions and more opportunities for Xinran to shed light on the culture of her native land.
