Reviews

Sabotage is a great book. It lifts the lid on shocking, systematic abuses, of which every user of financial services needs to be aware. It ought to be required reading for every civil servant, regulator and politician in the UK and elsewhere. -- Ian Fraser * Literary Review *
If you're a progressive, in Britain or elsewhere, and if you think the movement needs fresh ideas, read this book, it's full of them. Then get to work. -- Oliver Bullough * The Guardian *
Distinctive, fresh and well-justified... Sabotage deserves high praise for fulfilling the most valuable injunction of all when it comes to catastrophic crises with terrible human costs: never forget. -- Felix Martin * New Statesman *
Nesvetailova and Palan trace how financiers have corrupted the purpose of the corporation, undermined our tax authorities, foxed the regulators, evaded the forces of law and order, and generally rigged markets in their favour. There's a word for all this - sabotage. And as it has unfolded, finance has been steadily sabotaging our democracies. This lucid, persuasive and timely new book hits the nail on the head. -- Nicholas Shaxson, author of Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men Who Stole the World
