Suppressed Books on Terrorism Highlighted

The Spiked Review of Books gives space for the authors of five politically-diverse books on terrorism which have been “‘erased from the map’ by English libel actions” to showcase their suppressed works.

As I noted a few days ago, not only have the books themselves been taken out of the public domain – the UK media is also ignoring the problem. According to Private Eye, the Economist, the Spectator, and the London Observer have all spiked articles about the Saudi billionaire who brought or threatened the various libel actions.

As well as the five books overviewed by Spiked, the UK edition of Craig Unger’s House of Bush, House of Saud has also been cancelled due to threats from the same source.
