"An authoritative guide to the business of war. Chilling, heartbreaking, and enraging."---Arundhati Roy

The Shadow World is the behind-the-scenes tale of the global arms trade, exposing in forensic detail the deadly collusion that all too often exists among senior politicians, weapons manufacturers, felonious arms dealers, and the military---a situation that compromises our security and undermines our democracy.

Andrew Feinstein reveals the cover-ups behind a range of weapons deals, from the largest in history---between the British and Saudi governments---to the guns-for-diamonds deals in Africa and the current $60 billion U.S. weapons contract with Saudi Arabia. Based on pathbreaking reporting and unprecedented access to top-secret information, The Shadow World takes us into a clandestine realm that is as vitally important as it is shocking.

This should be half as long and written by someone else, but it does contain some interesting information. Skipped over section 3 mostly. ( I was thinking of writing about the arms trade in 2000 or so ) Ανάγνωση ολόκληρης της κριτικής
