Summary

The Night War Broke Out was recorded live in Edinburgh on the evening the US and UK military started the invasion of Iraq, with the bombing of Saddam Hussein's palace. The day was full of rumours that Saddam Hussein's deputy Tariq Aziz had been captured (untrue) and that the invasion had started (true). Lunchtime that day saw a massive turnout of anti-war protestors taking part in civil disobedience by blocking the main streets of the city. Over 4,000 people defied the police in sit-down protests and school children attempted to storm the Scottish Parliament.

Listen to this book !!

A foul-mouthed but seriously thought-provoking look at the world at the time of the start of the second Gulf War. Mark Thomas provides an extremely funny narrative that celebrates the right to protest against authority interspersed with frightening statistics of Governmental excesses. If this does not prick at your conscience and urge you to join the movement at some level you must be George W Bush.
