His work in the Sahara began in 1964. Since then his books on the Sahara include: The Tuareg. People of Ahaggar (1977 republished in 2002); Sahara Man. Travelling with the Tuareg (2001 republished 2003); The Lesser Gods of the Sahara, (Frank Cass, Routledge 2004);The Sahara: Past Present and Future (Routledge 2006) and The Dark Sahara: Americas War on Terror in Africa (Pluto 2009) and The Dying Sahara: US Imperialism and Terror in Africa (Pluto 2011).
Since 2001, his work has focused almost exclusively on state crimes, especially the Global War on Terror (GWOT) on which he has written extensively. As a consultant, he now briefs numerous international governmental bodies, INGOs and corporates and contributes regular Opinion-Editorials to Al Jazeera. In the last century, he also worked on apartheid South Africa, the transition of the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe and the development of the EU.
A Times Literary Supplement review described him as “his own man: brave, authoritative and master of his environment by dint of scholarship and experience”.
