Shadow World, a documentary based on the book, The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade, by Andrew Feinstein, will air tonight, November 20, 2017, on Independent Lens on PBS. I highly recommend watching it. I also highly recommend reading the book.
Here is a portion of the description from the book’s cover:
“The Shadow World is the behind-the-scenes tale of the global arms trade, exposing in forensic detail the deadly collusion that all too often exists among senior politicians, weapons manufacturers, felonious arms dealers, and the military–a situation that compromises our security and undermines our democracy.
There is so much information in this book that is helpful to understanding what drives war and conflict around the world. If the documentary includes even a fraction of that information, watching it will be an eye-opening experience. Don’t miss it!
