Description de l’éditeur

VOLUME 1

Synthesis is the story of five escapees from US Guantanamo in Oct. 2004 that unravels right through to June 2017. Over half of the book is the escapees’ unfolding adventures under Cuban jurisdiction and the various international repercussions that follow. The Second half exposes the connections between the war on terror, the 2008 banking crash, the military-industrial complex, and US-NATO regime change policies. All driven by a 40-year neoliberal agenda transferring wealth and power from ordinary people to the top 1%, and corporations. 

The escapees are: Sergeant Randy Reagan, a US military intelligence interrogator – the organiser of this incredible escape; his 20 year friend, Zulfiqar, a former mujahideen freedom fighter; Iftekhar, an Oxford PhD graduate on an intellectual journey; Mubarak, a Kenyan young man caught up in the war on terror; and Roxana – a Palestinian woman from Gaza.

A Catholic priest agrees to grant the escapees sanctuary, later rejected by his bishop and the five escapees apply to the Partido Communista de Cuba (PCC) for political asylum. At this point, we become aware of growing tensions between the former mujahideen fighter and the Palestinian woman. – And there’s an instant attraction between two of the young escapees. 

Two new central characters emerge: Luisa, the Chairperson of the Committees for the Defence of the Revolution (CDR), and Mariela, a party officer. National PCC takes control and they’re all secretly flown to Havana. During the flight we learn about Iftekhar’s 27-hour, handcuffed, shackled and hooded journey to Camp X-Ray, three years earlier.

SYNTHESIS

Synthesis is the story of five escapees from US Guantanamo in Oct. 2004 that unravels through to June, 2017. Over half of the book is the escapees’ unfolding adventure story under Cuban jurisdiction and the various international repercussions that follow. The second half exposes the connections between the war on terror, the 2008 banking crash, the military-industrial complex, and US-NATO regime change policies. All driven by a 40-year neoliberal agenda transferring wealth and power from ordinary people to the top 1%, and corporations. This is an epic-sized book (202k + 67k in Refs), which is set out in Five Volumes. 

Synthesis is bold and provocative. It will inform and enlighten the reader to question everything they’re told, and encourage them to think for themselves. The book mostly uses plain language (some very strong language), and there are two different endings to the five escapees’ story, as well as a third overall ending to the entire big picture story.
