From Caliban To The Taliban – 500 Years Of Humanitarian Intervention, is a tale of capitalist expansion down through the ages, coupled with America’s global terror campaign waged “with goodwill to all”.

He then travels back in time and covers many periods in history, and manages to bring it all together into a complete storyline, which reeks of propaganda throughout the ages.
Imperialism has always been the World’s worst enemy, yet most of us never seem to see it in action, even when it is ongoing right before our eyes. Newman is one who can help to wake us up though.
