The Catholic Orangemen of Togo

Craig Murray, the former British Ambassador of Uzbekistan, has written his second book titled The Catholic Orangemen of Togo and Other Conflicts I Have Known. As Murray writes in this blog post,

The book is an autobiographical prequel to Murder in Samarkand and covers the period 1998 to 2002. It exposes the links between blood diamonds, crime and British mercenary involvement in Africa. it argues that the disregard Tony Blair showed for both British and international law in dealing with Sierra Leone prefigured the disaster of Iraq. It also covers my role in the dawn of democracy in Ghana.

I’d read Murray’s first book Murder in Samarkand and so it’ll be interesting to read his second work. What makes this book even more interesting is that the publisher pulled out of publishing the book because of a libel threat. Murray then decided to release the book for free (in PDF form) on January 12th, which he talks about here.

Long story short, you can buy the book here.

You can however purchase it here, direct from me, for the cover price of £17.99. This includes postage and packing to anywhere in the World, plus a signature and message if you wish.

I should fess up that I stand to make 80p profit on every copy sold though Amazon, but about £3.60 on every copy sold direct here. So, in addition, for every copy sold direct I will make a donation of £1 to either People and Planet, Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch. You can choose the nature of your donation below when you make your purchase via PayPal, and your donation choice will be confirmed by email.

I don’t know how the book will be but I think it deserves to be out, so people can make up their own minds. Freedom of speech or something.
