Review

As much of history is appropriated by the media and we are beckoned into an era of endless war, this superb book could not be more timely. Sensational in the best sense, it examines the darkest corners of the imperial past to reveal the truth behind today's news (John Pilger)

Unearthing this largely hidden history is a contribution of the highest significance, and could hardly be more timely. (Noam Chomsky)

This valuable and important book by Mark Curtis, the result of painstaking and extensive research into declassified files on British policy towards the Islamic world over the last half century, presents a far more accurate and balanced picture than the shallow simplicities fed by Bush?s so-called war on terror.

It shows in extensive detail how Britain and the US have repeatedly sided with radical Islamic forces in the Middle East and elsewhere as counterweights to check the rise of nationalism, as shock troops to bring about pro-Western regime change, and as proxies to fight wars against the West?s enemies. There is no war between civilizations (Bush), no Manichaean struggle between the good and evil forces of Islam (Blair), rather the ever-present serpentine thread of shifting alliances to maintain British control of key energy resources and Britain?s place in a pro-Western global financial order centred on Saudi Arabia.

This is a fascinating account which can change outlooks and deepen comprehension of a hugely misunderstood drama, and it should be compelling reading before any further Middle East wars are set in train.

(Michael Meacher, MP)

Secret Affairs deserves to become a key reference point in the debate over terrorism and Middle East policy (Metro)

a work of great importance and sobering conclusions (Tribune)

enthralling, encyclopedic and damning (Chartist)

Gripping stuff (Sunday Business Post)

Book Description

A freshly updated and revelatory investigation into Britain's secret collaboration with radical Islam
