  • About the book

      'Engrossing and frankly deeply troubling' - The Bookseller

      Why is the world so dangerous now?

      In a piercing analysis, Arthur Snell reveals the role the United Kingdom has played in raising tension and creating global flashpoints in the 21st Century.

      With decades of service in the Foreign Office, Snell looks at British interventions from Kosovo to Iraq to Afghanistan, as well as UK policy towards Russia, Saudi Arabia and China.

      Far from being a minor player, he argues, Britain has often been decisive in world affairs. Britain supplied the dodgy intelligence that America used to justify its invasion of Iraq. Britain has provided money-laundering services for the Russian elite in London, perpetuating the rule of Vladimir Putin.

      Without the UK’s marginal but key role, Snell argues, the wars in Kosovo, Iraq, and Libya would not have happened and our world today would be safer. The book reveals the internal politics and concerns of the world's major powers.
