This is a fascinating and revelatory investigation into Britain's secret collaboration with radical Islam. In this ground-breaking book, Mark Curtis reveals the covert history of British collusion with radical Islamic and terrorist groups. Drawing on declassified government files, "Secret Affairs" shows how successive UK governments have created strategic alliances with militant groups linked to al-Qaida to control oil resources, overthrow governments and promote Britain's financial interests. Alliances that have helped create the Islamic terrorism that now threatens our way of life. This recording is unabridged.
