Britain's Human Rights Abuses, revelations on British foreign policy from the author of Web of Deceit.

Unpeople Synopsis

Millions of people have died as a result of Britain's foreign policy. Mark Curtis calls these victims Unpeople - those whose lives are seen as expendable in the pursuit of governments' economic and political goals. -In Unpeople, Mark Curtis shows the Blair government's continuing support for many of the world's most repressive regimes and, using unearthed evidence from formerly secret documents, reveals for the first time the hidden history of unethical British policies, including: support for the massacres in Iraq in 1963; Britain's extraordinary private backing of the US in its aggression against Vietnam; support for the rise of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin; the prosecution of a covert, 'dirty war' in Yemen in the 1960s; Britain's backing of apartheid regimes in South Africa; secret campaigns with the US to overthrow the governments of Indonesia and British Guiana; the welcoming of General Pinochet's brutal coup in Chile in 1973; and much more. This explosive new book, from the author of Web of Deceit, shows the reality of the Blair government's policies since the invasion of Iraq, revealing that our military is poised for a new phase of global intervention in alliance with the US, while an extraordinary government propaganda campaign is being mounted to obscure the reality of this policy from the public.
