Rough Music : Blair, Bombs, Baghdad, London,Terror
Shipping calculated at checkout.
On July 7th, the murderous mayhem that Blair's war has sown in Iraq came home to London in a devastating series of suicide bombings. Two weeks later, with apparent impunity, security forces shot dead a young Brazilian electrician on his way to work. Rough Music is Tariq Ali's white-hot response to these events. He lays bare the vengeful platitudes of Blair's war on civil liberties, mounts a scorching attack on the cosy falsehoods of the government's 'consensus' on what the threat amounts to and how to respond, and denounces the corruption of the political-media bubble which allows it to go unchallenged. Finally, invoking the perseverance and integrity of the great dissenters of the past, he calls for political resistance, within parliament and without.
