Best-selling journalist Antony Loewenstein trav­els across Afghanistan, Pakistan, Haiti, Papua New Guinea, the United States, Britain, Greece, and Australia to witness the reality of disaster capitalism. He discovers how companies such as G4S, Serco, and Halliburton cash in on or­ganized misery in a hidden world of privatized detention centers, militarized private security, aid profiteering, and destructive mining.

Disaster has become big business. Talking to immigrants stuck in limbo in Britain or visiting immigration centers in America, Loewenstein maps the secret networks formed to help cor­porations bleed what profits they can from economic crisis. He debates with Western contractors in Afghanistan, meets the locals in post-earthquake Haiti, and in Greece finds a country at the mercy of vulture profiteers. In Papua New Guinea, he sees a local commu­nity forced to rebel against predatory resource companies and NGOs.

What emerges through Loewenstein’s re­porting is a dark history of multinational corpo­rations that, with the aid of media and political elites, have grown more powerful than national governments. In the twenty-first century, the vulnerable have become the world’s most valu­able commodity. Disaster Capitalism is published by Verso in 2015 and in paperback in January 2017.

Profits_of_doom_cover_350Vulture capitalism has seen the corporation become more powerful than the state, and yet its work is often done by stealth, supported by political and media elites. The result is privatised wars and outsourced detention centres, mining companies pillaging precious land in developing countries and struggling nations invaded by NGOs and the corporate dollar. Best-selling journalist Antony Loewenstein travels to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Haiti, Papua New Guinea and across Australia to witness the reality of this largely hidden world of privatised detention centres, outsourced aid, destructive resource wars and militarized private security. Who is involved and why? Can it be stopped? What are the alternatives in a globalised world? Profits of Doom, published in 2013 and released in an updated edition in 2014, challenges the fundamentals of our unsustainable way of life and the money-making imperatives driving it. It is released in an updated edition in 2014.
forgodssakecover Four Australian thinkers come together to ask and answer the big questions, such as: What is the nature of the universe? Doesn't religion cause most of the conflict in the world? And Where do we find hope?   We are introduced to different belief systems – Judaism, Christianity, Islam – and to the argument that atheism, like organised religion, has its own compelling logic. And we gain insight into the life events that led each author to their current position.   Jane Caro flirted briefly with spiritual belief, inspired by 19th century literary heroines such as Elizabeth Gaskell and the Bronte sisters. Antony Loewenstein is proudly culturally, yet unconventionally, Jewish. Simon Smart is firmly and resolutely a Christian, but one who has had some of his most profound spiritual moments while surfing. Rachel Woodlock grew up in the alternative embrace of Baha'i belief but became entranced by its older parent religion, Islam.   Provocative, informative and passionately argued, For God's Sakepublished in 2013, encourages us to accept religious differences, but to also challenge more vigorously the beliefs that create discord.  
After Zionism, published in 2012 and 2013 with co-editor Ahmed Moor, brings together some of the world s leading thinkers on the Middle East question to dissect the century-long conflict between Zionism and the Palestinians, and to explore possible forms of a one-state solution. Time has run out for the two-state solution because of the unending and permanent Jewish colonization of Palestinian land. Although deep mistrust exists on both sides of the conflict, growing numbers of Palestinians and Israelis, Jews and Arabs are working together to forge a different, unified future. Progressive and realist ideas are at last gaining a foothold in the discourse, while those influenced by the colonial era have been discredited or abandoned. Whatever the political solution may be, Palestinian and Israeli lives are intertwined, enmeshed, irrevocably. This daring and timely collection includes essays by Omar Barghouti, Jonathan Cook, Joseph Dana, Jeremiah Haber, Jeff Halper, Ghada Karmi, Antony Loewenstein, Saree Makdisi, John Mearsheimer, Ahmed Moor, Ilan Pappe, Sara Roy and Phil Weiss.
The 2008 financial crisis opened the door for a bold, progressive social movement. But despite widespread revulsion at economic inequity and political opportunism, after the crash very little has changed. Has the Left failed? What agenda should progressives pursue? And what alternatives do they dare to imagine? Left Turn, published by Melbourne University Press in 2012 and co-edited with Jeff Sparrow, is aimed at the many Australians disillusioned with the political process. It includes passionate and challenging contributions by a diverse range of writers, thinkers and politicians, from Larissa Berendht and Christos Tsiolkas to Guy Rundle and Lee Rhiannon. These essays offer perspectives largely excluded from the mainstream. They offer possibilities for resistance and for a renewed struggle for change.
The Blogging Revolution, released by Melbourne University Press in 2008, is a colourful and revelatory account of bloggers around the globe why live and write under repressive regimes - many of them risking their lives in doing so. Antony Loewenstein's travels take him to private parties in Iran and Egypt, internet cafes in Saudi Arabia and Damascus, to the homes of Cuban dissidents and into newspaper offices in Beijing, where he discovers the ways in which the internet is threatening the ruld of governments. Through first-hand investigations, he reveals the complicity of Western multinationals in assisting the restriction of information in these countries and how bloggers are leading the charge for change. The blogging revolution is a superb examination about the nature of repression in the twenty-first century and the power of brave individuals to overcome it. It was released in an updated edition in 2011, post the Arab revolutions, and an updated Indian print version in 2011.
The best-selling book on the Israel/Palestine conflict, My Israel Question - on Jewish identity, the Zionist lobby, reporting from Palestine and future Middle East directions - was released by Melbourne University Press in 2006. A new, updated edition was released in 2007 (and reprinted again in 2008). The book was short-listed for the 2007 NSW Premier's Literary Award. Another fully updated, third edition was published in 2009. It was released in all e-book formats in 2011. An updated and translated edition was published in Arabic in 2012.

The corruption of the occupation

Robert Fisk, The Independent, June 3:

Could Haditha be just the tip of the mass grave? The corpses we have glimpsed, the grainy footage of the cadavers and the dead children; could these be just a few of many? Does the handiwork of America’s army of the slums go further?

I remember clearly the first suspicions I had that murder most foul might be taking place in our name in Iraq. I was in the Baghdad mortuary, counting corpses, when one of the city’s senior medical officials, an old friend, told me of his fears. “Everyone brings bodies here,” he said. “But when the Americans bring bodies in, we are instructed that under no circumstances are we ever to do post-mortems. We were given to understand that this had already been done. Sometimes we’d get a piece of paper like this one with a body.” And here the man handed me a U.S. military document showing with the hand-drawn outline of a man’s body and the words “trauma wounds.”

What kind of trauma is now being experienced in Iraq? Just who is doing the mass killing? Who is dumping so many bodies on garbage heaps? After Haditha, we are going to reshape our suspicions. 

In recent history, the US embraced and supported death squads in Latin America.

    Fisk on the sauce, again? Or has he had one line of Colombian marching poweder too many? 😉

  • Addamo

    It's become the automatic response from the blood thirsty war supporters that anything Fisk says must be a figment of his imagination. Of course there are no massacres in Iraq. It will be solemnly announced by the Department of Defense that the Marines were all acquitted because it was proven that a two year old baby, that had been shot in the head 17 times, had pointed a Russian-made rocket launcher at a brave Marine who, as we all know, was defending not only the United States against terrorism but also aiding the loyal and loving Iraqi people to achieve the freedom they have been longing for and now, under Bush, have found.

    Obviously Viva has first hand eService to refute what people like Fisk, Partick Cockburn and Dahr Jamail all have been reporting. Tell us Viva, what do you see when looking into the amber glass of your VB?

    The Baghdad mortuary has been reporting an average of 70 bodies a day killed by violence in Iraq alone.

    The death squads operating out of the Ministry of the Interior are common knowledge, so is the fact that Rumsfeld was mulling over the idea of the Salvador Option for Iraq more than a year ago, before supposedly dropping the idea.

    The death squads are supposedly taking their orders from Iranian proxies, except that they are a) operating under the leadership of a Sunni General under Saddam that suppressed the Shiite uprising of 1991 and b) that they are sneaking Toyota Landruisers past US military checkpoints in the middle of the night.

    Seems to me Viva, that you are the one who is in need of the juice, though I am surprised that you didn't take this article to be yet another anti-Semitic screed by Fisk.

  • viva peace

    Also I think we all need to become more circumspect with the use of teh term "occupation." The US is not an occupying power of Iraq. US Marines are in Iraq, at the request, and at the pleasure, of the Iraqi people.

    On far too many blogs like this the contempt towards democracy and concomitant deifying of fascist thugs has become an epidemic.

  • Addamo

    Sure Viva,

    And the moon is made of cheese too.

    1. So much for agreeing to leave when the Iraqi leadership asks the colation to leave. Malaki has asked the Coaltion to leave and Blair has said NO!

    "Britain has been asked to leave Iraq by the leader it helped to install. Only arrogance or myopia can explain its refusal"
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/story/0,,…

    2. Camp Victory is not the worlds largets military base, but a massive theme park in diguise.

    3. The US embassy is not an embassy at all, but in fact. being converted to low rent housing for Iraqis who's homes have been destroyed.

    4. Fascist thugs cease to be fascist when they become partners in the war on terror (a la Karimov and Mushareff), in which case, they are birthing democracies.

    5. Democracy is in finite supply which is why it is becoming scarce in the West while it is being exported to other countries.

  • viva peace

    Addamo

    Thanks for the link. I did not realize that Malaki had put a date on his "expectation" that the Coalition leave 16 of the 18 provinces "by the end of the year."

    So Addamo, perhaps "at the end of the year" if Malaki STILL "expects Colation forces to leave 16 out of 18" and IF they refuse, THEN we can start talikng about an "occupation."

    So how about we agree to knock off the sophomoric agitprop until then? Deal?

  • Addamo

    Viva,

    Sure thing, so long as you set a course for planet earth and admit that the US were not invited into Iraq, which made their entry an invasion and their continues presence an occupation.

    Nor do I recall the people of Iraq requesting that the US discard all of Iraq’s exiting laws and treaties and enforce laws that were rewritten by authors from US right wing think tanks. That’s supposed to be the exclusive right of the sovereign leadership, which must mean that the US were it at the time. One could argue that the Iraqi leadership could revisit these laws any time they wish, except that their benevolent liberators made the laws irrevocable.

    The disbanding of the Iraqi military/police is also supposed to be the domain of local government, yet the non occupiers took it upon themselves to do that also.

    Finally, you might want to look up how Washington intended form the outset to use Iraq’s own oil revenues to finance the “liberation” which overwhelmingly thows any idea notion that Iraq’s leadership are in control of their own resources.

    To top it all off, as a measure of respect the “liberators” have for Iraq’s laws and leadership, the occupation forces enjoy immunity from all laws, which is why they go think they can kill Iraqi’s without any repercussions (unless someone happens to turn up with a camera).

    Every time an Iraqi leader has dared to mention the scaling back (or ending) or the collation presence in Iraq, they have enjoyed a visitation from heir Rumsfeld or Madame Condi (or both), and miraculously change their mind.

    Given that 3,500 more US troops are on their way to the Anbar province, and that the Pentagon's quarterly report states that the insurgency is not going anywhere beyond 2007, let's bypass the "let's wait and see" option seeing as this deadline is expected to be missed.

  • viva peace

    Addamo

    My point on "law" is based on the realpolitik of "international law." And that reality is bounded by the veto of the UNSC. And as both the US and UK have said veto their will never be a ruling on the "illegality" of the invasion. Personally I think reducing matters of this profound import to judges, Geoffrey Robertsons, wiga and gowns is quite grotesque!

    That is why I have a hard time accepting the ease with which people fling about the word "law" in relation to all these issues. I have long given up trying to point out that there is not and never has been a Palestinian "right of return"

  • Comical_Ali

    The term "to Fisk" was coined for a reason.

    If I can recall, the last Fisk television interview on Lateline was notablly absent from your blog, Antony.

    Why? That was after all, Fisk at his very finest.

    No wonder, some of the most celebrated anti-war journalists like Paul Mcgeough, think Fisk is full of Merde (excuse the French).

  • Addamo

    Viva,

    Why on earth are you bringing up the UNSC? They are powerless to do a damn thing about what is goign on in Iraq, seeing as the US and the UK have a veto on any resolutinos that are submitted. It's rather like Al Capone doing his own tax return and expeting him to come up with discrepancies.

    And please, let's grow up shall we and agree that what the US and the UK says has absolutley no bearing on reality. These guys were bugging UNSC members if you don't recall, hardly evidence they are prepared to play clean. Besides, the mess in Iraq is such that no one wants to go anywhere near it. If vultures are picking at a corpse, can you really expect the peramedics to attempt to revive the victim?

    Yes, you have a point about law not being appplicable when the entire notion of it was thrown out the window from the beginning. Once again, we are back to the ruel of might makes right, or that posession is 9 tenths of the law.

    Similarly, and at the end of the day, the weakness in the argument for the Palestinian “right of return” comes down to one simple fact – that their guns aren't big enough.

  • viva peace

    Addamo

    I only raise the UNSC to point out how lame your constant squealing about "legality" is.

  • Addamo

    No disagreement there, but then why get so hung up on whether the presence of US troops should or should nto be termed an occupation?

  • boredinHk

    Addamo,

    Are you still in Toronto?

    what is the story with the 17 arrested persons?

    and why canada ?

  • Addamo

    No I am not in Toronto but Monreal.

    Very little news abotu it here at the moment, strangely enough. Why Canada? Well, it has been expected for some time now, but isn't it interetsting how terrorist threats seem to follow conservative leaders?

    Harper has taken up to mimiking Bush and travelleing around the country ina fleet of black SUV's, much to the distatste of the Canadian public who see it as a delusions of grandeur.

  • Addamo

    re Toronto,

    I just came across this news item:

    RCMP behind bomb material http://www.thestar.com/NASApp/cs/ContentServer?pa

    The sale of the amonium nitrate was controlled by the state police.

  • captain

    Fisk has an "old friend" who works in the morgue. Intriguing!

    Fisk has become the master of the innuendo. Name your source or name your sauce!

  • Addamo

    Whta's so intriguing about an investigative reporter having connections in important places?

    The White Hosue just hired a former journo from Fox News for Christs sake.

    But you have a point Captain, which is why secrecy is paramount to those in power. If there is no official statement or no official evidence, then there is always deniability.

  • captain

    There is no official claim. Fisk does not identify his sources. He argues with innuendo. It amounts to a story around "I know this bloke…"

    Segway with the appointment of the new White House spokesman? nil. Fisk is making a specific assertion with no facts. He creates impressions. That is what bad journalists do.

    You can only investigate a specific allegation, not an innuendo. Let Fisk put his money where his mouth is and make specific non hysterical claims.

    I don't know why you still gravitate to Fisk when he has been thoroughly discredited.

  • Comical_Ali

    and why canada ?

    Addammo replies:

    Damn those SUV's!

    Down with the SUV! Down with Canada and its occupation of SUV's!

    Well, it has been expected for some time now, but isn’t it interetsting how terrorist threats seem to follow conservative leaders?

    Down with democracy!

  • Addamo

    Captain,

    There is no official claim.

    There in lies the circular reasoning. Fisk points out that those sources are under strict orders not to divulge such information. For the claims to be made official, the sources themselves would be put at risk. That's what censorship is designed to achieve. surely even you can see this dilemma?

    Look at what happened after the Abu Graib scandal. Rummy banned the use of digital and mobile phone cameras at Abu Graib. Presto. No more evidence and any suggestion of wrongdoing becomes unsupported innuendo.

    Fisk is making a specific assertion with no facts. He creates impressions. That is what bad journalists do.

    You’re sounding like your idiotic self once again Captain. Look at what happened to Vannunu when he came out with facts.

    You can only investigate a specific allegation, not an innuendo. Let Fisk put his money where his mouth is and make specific non hysterical claims.

    This is not a decision for Fisk to make. It is up to his sources to agree to use them as his source. Are you saying he should say "screw you, I'm writing this anyway"?

    "I don’t know why you still gravitate to Fisk when he has been thoroughly discredited.”

    Because he has NOT been thoroughly discredited. He has been wrong on occasions, yes, but name any nournlist who has not been wrong, especialy investigative journalists.

    You want the world to believe he has been discredited because his reports are rarely what you want to hear.

  • Addamo

    Actually Comical,

    This "terrorist" threat is alreasy starting to sound like a farce. The news reports are soundin gmore and more sketchy and vague.

    Here's a theory. Harper came to power by default (the public voted out the incumbent to punish them for corruption), so he is on a tight leash. The same thing happenedd with Bush when he came to power pre 911. He was completely ineffective and impotent, then 911 came and whammo, COngress becasue his bitch overnight.

    Maybe this sideshow is an example of Harper taking a leaf out of Bush's how to manual.

  • Addamo

    Fisk is a crank who makes for light entertainment on nightly news broadcasts. That is all.

  • Addamo

    It is YOU who bangs on incessantly about "occupation." And you are wrong to do so; so please desist.

  • Comical_Ali

    This “terrorist” threat is alreasy starting to sound like a farce. The news reports are soundin gmore and more sketchy and vague.

    Amazing how you could dismiss this as a "farce" so early on especially when more and more evidence is mounting against them. Yes, Addamo its all one big, sinister, Islamophobic, racist, conspiracy.

    Here's part of the farce:

    Mike McDonnell, an assistant commissioner with the Mounties, said yesterday that the amount of ammonium nitrate acquired by the alleged terror cell was three times that used by American anti-government extremists to blow up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995, killing 168 people and injuring more than 800.

    Interestingly, this particular islamist group was monitored since 2004, long before a conservative party was in power.

    In addition, the first attack on the WTC occurred under the non-Conservative Clinton administration. And like Canada, another attack was thrawted in socialist controlled spain last year.

  • Addamo

    Viva,

    Yes I do bang on about occupation, because there are thousands of Iraqi's dying as a result of it. No I will no desist and sugar coat it just because you haven't the stomach for reality.

    The US military bases in Iraq were planned before any Iraqi government was elected, so they were no constructed with the go ahead of the Iraqi leadership, and clearly there were no plans in place to dismantle them had the Iraqi leadership demanded it.

    This is evidence enough of the little regard the OCCUPATION has for the Iraqis.

    Comical,

    From your bunker, all things seem to clear. Strange you should speak with such certainty, when here in Canada, the story barely rates a mention on televised news. Incidentally, the ammonium nitrate “acquired” by the “terrorist cell” was supplied by the RCMP. Looks like it amounts to posting a block of hash to someone to bust them for possession.

    Yes the WTC attack did take place under Clinton, and isn;t even more strange that Abdul Rahman Yassin, who was involved in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, was jailed by Saddam (this after the FBI interviewed Yassin stateside and then released him) and according to '60 Minutes,' he was twice offered to the US, once to Clinton, the second time to President Bush, and the US rejected both offers?

    Surely that's all Clinton's fault as well?

    Oh yes, the THWARTED attacks, gotta love those, Like the big one Bush was crowing about last year, where a ground of guys were prevented from pulling the Brooklyn Bridge apart piece by piece using a welding torch. Pheeeeeeew, just in the knick of time huh?

  • Comical_Ali

    From your bunker, all things seem to clear.

    Thats right from my zionist nitrogen bunker from where I plot my quest for world domination.

    Bwahahaha!

    Strange you should speak with such certainty, when here in Canada, the story barely rates a mention on televised news.

    Good thing my zionist bunker comes with internet access: it appears as a top story on the websites of leading Canadian news broadcasters CBC and CTV. Well I guess they don’t televise these as top stories “as top stories” on television and only save it for the internet.

    I’m such a crafty zionist, having internet access and the zionist controlled google at my disposal and all.

    Incidentally, the ammonium nitrate “acquired” by the “terrorist cell” was supplied by the RCMP.

    In all probablity the group was set up by a police sting who posed as “ammonium nitrate salesman”. What was this innocent little group doing trying to purchase ammonium nitrate in the first place? fireworks to commerate the end of Ramadan?

    I don’t understand the relevance when the discussion was based around how it is “interetsting how terrorist threats seem to follow conservative leaders”. You can waffle on as much as you like, but you cant get away from the fact that the first attack on the WTC occurred under the Clinton administration.

    So you deny that the Spanish Zepataro government broke up a terrorist cell and thrawted an attack? Is it all just one big conspiracy?

    What was this innocent little group doing trying to purchase ammonium nitrate in the first place? fireworks to commerate the end of Ramadan?

    Good question, but you'll excuse me if I'm a little jaded by all these brilliant efforts to stave of Armagheddon.

    After all, we only have to remember the hoax over the 2002 terror plot against the Los Angeles Library Tower, then there was the British government's hoax Canary Wharf and Ricin terror conspiracies.

    In August 2003 26 Pakistani and South Asian men were arrested during a raid by the RCMP. They accusatino was that they were planning a dirty bomb attack on a nuclear facility, based on the fact that the suspects often "burned meals" and one of them had a poster of airplane schematics on his wall. All allegations were dropped and the men were released, but not before a media juggernaut fearmongering campaign about how Canadians in major cities were not safe.

    The question is, who in their right mind would buy 3 tonnes of the stuff, if they were serious about doing some damage? Surely an order of this size would set off red flags from here to kingdom come, adn any self respting jihadist would know this. Why is it that there have been no pictures of the prized booty and why did the police failt o mention that this was a sting operation to begin with?

    What's with the staged prop photos of 'sample' bags of ammonium nitrate, guns and explosive timers?

    So you deny that the Spanish Zepataro government broke up a terrorist cell and thrawted an attack?

    Can you point me to a link? I must have forgotten about it.

    I'm not that faimiliar with that particular event and its the first I've heard of it. And I don't have the time to verify your version of what transpired in that case.

    With the current arrests, all I can say is that we will have to wait and see. So far, the evidence is pretty incriminating and to say that its some sort of conspiracy (i.e. "everyone is out to get the muslims") is not only pre-mature but could potentially damage the reputation of the Muslim community at large and cast people like yourself and Smiths as delusional cranks.

    and clinton was not liberal

    There, there Smiths, its ok.

    And the fact that the alleged Canadian terror cell may have been plotting way back in 2004, is completley irrelevant.

    The left right argument is ciomplete BS. By US standards, Clinton was a moderate, which woudl make him a rabbid right wing nut by Australian standards. Bush is actually very left wing in many ways – boig government, big spending, big interventionist.

    And the fact that the alleged Canadian terror cell may have been plotting way back in 2004, is completley irrelevant.

    Sure, just like 911 is all Clinton's fault. Hey, doesn;t that make the first WTC bombing Bush 41'sr responsibility?
