Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The justification for the invasion of Iraq was that Saddam Hussein possessed a highly dangerous body of weapons of mass destruction, some of which could be fired in 45 minutes, bringing about appalling devastation. We were assured that was true. It was not true. We were told that Iraq had a relationship with Al Qaeda and shared responsibility for the atrocity in New York of September 11, 2001. We were assured that this was true. It was not true. We were told that Iraq threatened the security of the world. We were assured it was true. It was not true." — Harold Pinter, Art, Truth and Politics

At a time when the US and UK are contemplating further imperial adventures in Iran, Not One More Death lays bare the act of state terrorism that is the invasion and occupation of Iraq and reveals the tapestry of lies that underpins it.

Prominent musicians, playwrights, scientists and writers look at how public opinion is wilfully ignored, and "democracy" used as a figleaf for US imperial ambitions in the Middle East.

Not One More Death examines the record of US and UK troops in Iraq, questions Bush and Blair's position under international law, and considers the responsibilities of artists, writers and the wider public in a time of war and occupation.
