Bahrain bans advisor’s memoir

The diary of a British advisor to Bahraini government has been banned after new material was added to the latest edition. The 600 page book narrates historically significant events during Charles Belgrave’s time in the country from 1926 to 1957. The Bahrain Center for Human Rights believes the book was banned because it goes into detail of how the government distributed land and wealth. Previous editions of the book were also censored by Bahraini authorities.
