'One of the most important books in recent years. ... This book draws together some of the most brilliant analysts in the world. I cannot recommend it highly enough.' Robert W. McChesney, author, The Problem of the Media

"The G8 runs what South African president Thabo Mbeki and others describe as 'global apartheid'. ... He -- and everyone else -- should read this superb book, and then help abolish, not polish, the chains of global apartheid." Trevor Ngwane, Organising Secretary of the Anti-Privatisation Forum, Johannesburg

"This book reminds us brilliantly that, far from ending poverty, today's political elites are the chief creators of human want, war and ecological disaster." John McAllion, Oxfam Scotland

This is a one-stop guide for anyone who wants to know more about the G8, what it is, and why it's a problem. Leading writers and activists including Noam Chomsky, George Monbiot, Susan George, Mark Curtis and Caroline Lucas explain in brief, succinct chapters, what is wrong with the G8 neo-liberal agenda and propose alternatives.

Chapters cover G8 attitudes to the key issues: war, corporate power, climate change, immigration, trade, debt, food. Ideal for anyone who is troubled by the current direction set by our world leaders, this book is also a great tool for activists.
