9780141040059: The Shadow World

Andrew Feinstein, former member of the African National Congress, investigates the secretive world of the global arms trade in his gripping new book The Shadow World. Feinstein reveals the corruption and the cover-ups behind BAE's controversial transactions in South Africa, Tanzania and eastern Europe and the revolving-door relationships that characterise the US Congressional-Military-Industrial Complex. The Shadow World exposes both the formal government-backed trade in arms as well as the illicit deals and lays bare the shocking links between the two. 'Essential reading for anyone who cares about justice, transparency and accountability in both the public and private spheres, and for anyone who believes that it is more important to invest in saving lives than in the machinery of death' Archbishop Desmond Tutu 'Andrew Feinstein has written an authoritative guide to the business of war. Chilling, heartbreaking and enraging' Arundhati Roy 'The nobility and justice of Feinstein's sentiments are indisputable. The arms trade is a loathsome commerce conducted by people who wear suits and occupy big boardroom tables, but should have trouble sleeping at night' Max Hastings, Sunday Times 'Remarkable and courageous . . . The Shadow World is a heroic book by an author who, in writing it, has put himself in the firing line' Iain Macwhirter 'Feinstein's book is a singularly powerful study, and deserves to be read by anyone who wants to see light shining on such a shadowy world' Independent Andrew Feinstein is the author of After the Party: A Personal and Political Journey Inside the ANC, a best-selling memoir of his time as an African National Congress MP in South Africa. His journalism has been featured in the Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Prospect, New York Times, Spiegel, New Statesman and Africa Report. He appears regularly on the BBC, CNN and Al Jazeera. He is the founding co-director of Corruption Watch, an anti-corruption NGO, and chairperson of the Aids charity FoTAC.

Review:

"An authoritative guide to the business of war. Chilling, heartbreaking, and enraging."---Arundhati Roy"Feinstein writes with a crusading spirit and a depth of detail that lend "The Shadow World" urgency and authority....A comprehensive treatment of the arms trade, possibly the most complete account that has ever been written."---"The Washington Post""Feinstein makes his case with an impressive amount of detailed research and a gift for narrative that make his findings hard to dismiss."---"Foreign Affairs""An eye-opener...Everyone would do well to read this book and self-educate on what this world is all about, and then take some action in the voting booth....Tremendous."---"Pittsburgh Post-Gazette"
