91. A Very British Jihad (Book Review) [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... Loyalist gangs with South African-supplied weapons and the subsequent alliance between the South African state and some of the loyalists; and, centrally, the career of Brian Nelson, the British Army's man directing the UDA killer gangs using intelligence from the British Army and RUC Special Branch. Larkin thinks that the 'collusion' can be traced back to the 'quiet coup' run in the UK in the 1970s which led to the election of Mrs Thatcher. This chapter, the one which he has written from other published sources, without the kind of detailed research he conducted in Northern Ireland, is the weakest bit of the book. Based in part in the analysis in Lobster 11 and Smear! ...

92. Enduring Freedom [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... It might also be understood as the intensification of a long-present sociological trend, identified by C Wright Mills in the late 1960s, for a 'power elite' to emerge in the now normal passage from government to consultancy to corporation and back again.' But then quickly afterwards they argue that the removal of the Gough Whitlam government in a 'constitutional coup' in Australia in 1975 led to commendable reform. Even their term 'legal authoritarianism' betrays a sort of mild shock-horror at the extent of the unfolding policies. Despite this, the book's main strengths the tracking of the growth of the intelligence services to dominate policy budgets in recent years and transform 'social democrat' governments into authoritarian ones ...

... in 2003 meant a leadership election in the GMB. Two candidates emerged from the organisational and political heartlands of the GMB: Kevin Curran (Northern Region, with a background on Tyneside) and Paul Kenny (London Region, former employee of Hammersmith and Fulham council). Curran won, shifting control of the entire union, in a considerable coup, back to the North East. One wonders if the curious and expedient volte-face of Mr Blair re: Ken Livingstone and the London mayoralty a few months later might not be related to the lobbying power and political preferences of Paul Kenny.

94. Also Noticed [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... h/b, £18.99 A left-liberal polemic against the Bush regime, this hits the right targets: corporate dominance of politics, stealing the election, 9/11, the hyping of terrorism, the Patriot Act, neo-cons, the religious right the new American Reich which Bush Jnr. has fronted since the Republicans ran their little coup in Florida. All entirely acceptable but rather familiar and mostly unsourced. It might get him run out of town in Middle America but for readers of this journal it won't be of much interest. Sort of Greg Palast lite; Gore Vidal without the style. The Vatican Exposed: Money, Murder and the Vatican Paul L. Williams ...

The Other 9/11 Peter Kornbluh (1) analyses CIA and White House records to show how the former made use of the Chilean media to help undermine Allende's government prior to the military coup of 11 September 1973. Augustin Edwards (owner of the country's leading newspaper, El Mercurio, and tactfully described as a Chilean Rupert Murdoch) had already been lobbying influential Americans to argue for 'aggressive US intervention' to remove Allende, and eventually met with Nixon and Kissinger to further press his case. He succeeded and the US did ...

96. Bean counters and empire [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... simply isn't good enough to treat Muscat and Oman as an isolated incident. The serious fighting in the region broke out in November 1958 with a British counter attack on various tribal insurgents. This took place against a backdrop of President Nasser announcing the union of Egypt with Syria (February 1958) and Yemen (March 1958) and a pro-Egyptian coup in Iraq (14 July 1958). The latter event resulted in a speedy US intervention in Lebanon (15 July) and a similar British operation in Jordan (17 July). The Defence White Paper announced that although Britain would remain a world player via the possession of nuclear weapons defence expenditure would be 'held' at 7% ...

97. Demos - fashionable ideas and the rule of the few [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... ). But I stood back from an out-right selling job, merely helping to change and adapt the rhetoric to make sure that no rich horses were frightened. The Company Secretary of the Hanson Group, archetypical at the time of predatory capitalism, agreed to sit on the Advisory Board. This was, quite rightly, regarded as a major coup. Adam Lury, a new wave (of the day) advertising executive and now on the Foreign Policy Centre board, and Bob Tyrrell of the Henley Centre (part of Sorrell's WPP Group) represented the new media and communications sector which were a key element in the Demos model of the universe. There was, of course, ...

... being about the manner of its execution. However these arguments were significant. In 1998 there was no talk of 'regime change' by the White House. The idea was to disarm Saddam Hussein completely and use UNSCOM and sanctions to police the country, at the same time covertly encouraging groups which would be in a position to stage a military coup. This was not enough for some: on 26 January 1998 Clinton received a letter calling for the removal of Saddam Hussein because he is a 'hazard a significant portion of the world's supply of oil'. The President was urged to 'seize the opportunity and to enunciate a new strategy that would secure the interests of the US and our ...

... with the likes of Balfour and Churchill, as 'Special Consultant on Russian Affairs' to the Secret Intelligence Service. The longevity and depth of his dealings with Churchill are of particular interest and seem to have been neglected by his recent biographers. After 1921 he became a freelance operator whilst still trying to persuade people that he could engineer a counter coup in the Soviet Union. Hearing about an alleged anti-Bolshevik group, 'the Trust', that was awaiting assistance from the West he crossed into the Soviet Union in 1926, and was never convincingly reported alive again. This book shows that he most probably walked into a Bolshevik trap there was no 'Trust' spent some time in ...

... or of the the CIA's role in the Vietnam War. There are odd flashes when he seems to getting there. On p. 156 he acknowledges that he may have been 'naive' in reassuring President Sukarno of Indonesia in 1963 that Guy Pauker, formerly of RAND, was not CIA. (Two years later Pauker was involved in the coup which overthrew Sukarno. On this see Peter Dale Scott's essay in Lobster 20) But this does not lead him to examine the evidence of US involvement in that coup. Kahin's innocence is understandable when he is describing his travels in the region in the 1950s: the CIA was still, more or less, a secret organisation; but ...
