Dan Glazebrook is a political writer and journalist. He has written for The Guardian, The Independent, Counterpunch, Z magazine, the Morning Star and Al Ahram. His main subjects are international relations and the use of state violence in British domestic and foreign policy.
The good thing about this book is that it comprises independent self contained essays. And you can read one essay each sitting without having to worry about continuity that's a big factor when reading voluminous books. I did not agree with all Dan Glazebrook says but his theories provide a different perspective and I found most of his work quite refreshing without necessarily agreeing to everything he says. Books like these, and of course by respectable and more famous authors like Naom chomski are a must for anyone having grown up in the West and only exposed the mainstream media where you would not find my dissenting voices to the currently prevalent Geo-political paradigm. An interesting counter narrative !
