            The Grand Deception: Corporate America and Perpetual War (Hardback)

            The Grand Deception is a fascinating analysis of global politics with particular reference to the United States. Mujahid Kamran presents compelling and discerning argument that most wars in the world today are fought for economic reasons. More often than not, these economic inter...ests are the interests of the wealthy elites of the countries, and counter to the interests of the people of the countries. In a series of elegantly written essays, Kamran points out that this wealthy elite the High Cabal is ceaselessly active in capturing global resources and is, by and large, highly successful in attaining its objectives. This reality is constantly concealed from the American people. The domestic and foreign policies of the United States are an astonishing and chilling illustration of this grand deception. Deeply informed, these essays, first written and published in Urdu under the title Pas e Parda, discuss many radioactive topics, including the CIA's connections to drug trade and Wall Street, the genocide of Iraqi citizens, and the so-called war on terror.

            Behind the stunning photos and personal accounts of Aceh Revives there is a secondary theme. Author, scientist and photographer, Dr Trustrum, produced the book while recovering from cancer. For Trustrum, it was a type of therapy and the resilience of the Acehnese people inspired ...him to move beyond his own personal struggle for good health. More than 230,000 people were killed in 14 countries. Indonesia, and particularly the province of Aceh in Sumatra, was one of the worst hit. More than 170,000 lives were lost and half a million of the province's population of 4.5 million were left homeless. The tsunami washed away hundreds of kilometres of roads and destroyed 120 bridges. This is Trustrum's second book documenting the recovery of Indonesia since the tsunami. In 2012, the bravery of the Archenese prompted him to produce a small, self-published book called SCARS: Life after the Tsunami. It features a sequence of photos of landscapes and people during the recovery over a nine-month period after the earthquake and tsunami.
