As Used on the Famous Nelson Mandela: Underground Adventures in the Arms and Torture Trade

by Mark Thomas
£7.99   paperback  Ebury Press (2007)

As Used on the Famous Nelson Mandela: Underground Adventures in the Arms and Torture Trade by Mark Thomas A deeply funny, deeply distrubing account of one man's rampage through the murky world of the arms trade.
 
Both a highly successful stand-up comedian and one of the UK's most effective and best-known political activists, Mark Thomas set off on a journey of discovery in the company of arms dealers, torture victims, politicians, cops, crusties and geeks. The result is a shockingly entertaining read.
 
Embedded within Mark's sharp, abrasive humour is the truth of an industry fraught with loopholes, complacency and greed; that allows corrupt regimes to kill, maim and displace, but whose deals are often subsidised by the British taxpayer.
 
Hard-hitting, laugh-out loud funny and extremely unsettling, As Used on the Famous Nelson Mandela is never anything less than compulsive.
