Synopsis: SHADOW WORLD, THE: INSIDE THE GLOBAL ARMS TRADE

Andrew Feinstein, former member of the African National Congress, investigates the secretive world of the global arms trade in his gripping new book "The Shadow World". Feinstein reveals the corruption and the cover-ups behind BAE's controversial transactions in South Africa, Tanzania and eastern Europe and the revolving-door relationships that characterise the US Congressional-Military-Industrial Complex. "The Shadow World" exposes both the formal government-backed trade in arms as well as the illicit deals and lays bare the shocking links between the two. "Essential reading for anyone who cares about justice, transparency and accountability in both the public and private spheres, and for anyone who believes that it is more important to invest in saving lives than in the machinery of death". (Archbishop Desmond Tutu). "Andrew Feinstein has written an authoritative guide to the business of war. Chilling, heartbreaking and enraging". (Arundhati Roy). "The nobility and justice of Feinstein's sentiments are indisputable. The arms trade is a loathsome commerce conducted by people who wear suits and occupy big boardroom tables, but should have trouble sleeping at night". (Max Hastings, "Sunday Times"). "Remarkable and courageous..."The Shadow World" is a heroic book by an author who, in writing it, has put himself in the firing line". (Iain Macwhirter). "Feinstein's book is a singularly powerful study, and deserves to be read by anyone who wants to see light shining on such a shadowy world". ("Independent"). Andrew Feinstein is the author of "After the Party: A Personal and Political Journey Inside the ANC", a best-selling memoir of his time as an African National Congress MP in South Africa. His journalism has been featured in the "Guardian", "Daily Telegraph", "Prospect", "New York Times", "Spiegel", "New Statesman" and "Africa Report". He appears regularly on the BBC, CNN and Al Jazeera. He is the founding co-director of Corruption Watch, an anti-corruption NGO, and chairperson of the Aids charity FoTAC.

FEINSTEIN, ANDREW

about author

Andrew Feinstein was elected an ANC member of parliament in South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994. He resigned in 2001 in protest at the ANC government’s refusal to allow an unfettered investigation into an arms deal that was tainted by allegations of high-level corruption. His political memoir, After the Party: A personal and political journey inside the ANC, was published in 2007.

Feinstein lives in London, where he chairs the Aids charity Friends of the Treatment Action Campaign, and lectures and writes on South Africa. He was educated at King’s College, Cambridge, the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Cape Town.
