An important and rare book. Lasslett provides the missing link to the reasons why nations fall into turmoil - the state crimes of the powerful. His investigation illuminates how so much of the world is ordered. -- John Pilger Compelling... through careful analysis, Lasslett shows us that imperialism remains alive and well and the inspiring individuals who dare to resist it. I salute his unique voice in a time of intellectual cowardice. -- Antony Loewenstein, independent journalist and best-selling author of My Israel Question and Profits of Doom This is quite simply the best case study so far that explicitly addresses state violence in the Global South through a state crime "lens" -- Tony Ward, Reader in Law, Hull University A fascinating depiction of extensive state criminality in Bougainville. Lasslett offers readers a deeply researched narrative, at once illuminating and horrifying, that is a microcosm of the daily harms wrought worldwide by neoliberal globalisation. Highly recommended. -- Richard Falk, Professor Emeritus of International Law at Princeton University and former United Nations Special Rapporteur on Palestinian human rights A must read for anyone who wants to understand how and why our world is being destroyed for profit. -- David Whyte Kristian Lasslett exposes the central crime-ridden workings of Empire in this detailed study from the periphery. His wealth of empirical evidence goes beyond the remarkable. -- Scott Poynting, Professor in Criminology, University of Auckland
