"A devastating and scrupulously documented account of the greed, venality, and rampant corruption pervading the global arms trade…A brilliant and massively important book."---Andrew J. Bacevich, Colonel, U.S. Army (Ret.), and author ofWashington Rules: America’s Path to Permanent WarThe Shadow Worldis the behind-the-scenes tale of the global arms trade, exposing in forensic detail the deadly collusion that all too often exists among senior politicians, weapons manufacturers, felonious arms dealers, and the military---a situation that compromises our security and undermines our democracy.Andrew Feinstein reveals the cover-ups behind a range of weapons deals, from the largest in history---between the British and Saudi governments---to the guns-for-diamonds deals in Africa and the current $60 billion U.S. weapons contract with Saudi Arabia. Based on pathbreaking reporting and unprecedented access to top-secret information,The Shadow Worldtakes us into a clandestine realm that is as vitally important as it is shocking.
