The Great Deception: Anglo-American Power and World Order by Mark Curtis (Paperback) (9780745312347)

Curtis uses original research into recently declassified government files to produce a critique of Anglo-American foreign policy in the 1990s. The author focuses on the areas of the UN, development and the Middle East, and shows how the US manipulates the international foreign policy to ensure it has access to strategically important resources.


'Mark Curtis demonstrates how Britain remains the key supporting player in US domination, and how far from benign that domination is in its impact on the rest of the world.' Victoria Brittain 'Essential reading for anyone wanting to understand Britain and the United States' true role in the world and the so-called order imposed by the Anglo-American alliance.' John Pilger 'His findings are damning.' Nick Cohen,London Review of Books
