All the Troubles: Terrorism, War and t/Adams, Simon/Paper/1920731105/S027-E
Fremantle Arts Centre Press
What have the events of 9/11 to do with Afghanistan, Bosnia, Palestine, Northern Ireland and other political hot spots around the globe?
In All The Troubles, Simon Adams explains, in 26 concise essays, the underlying history and politics of the new world order. He shows how the violence is neither random nor a simplistic case of good versus evil but rooted in a history of empire, colonialism and the Cold War. He also lays bare Australia¹s role in supporting the United States.
More serious than Moore and more compact than Pilger, All the Troubles is a book that will open your eyes and illuminate in stark relief the reality that lies behind the headlines that dominate our newspapers everyday.
