9780099143918: Distant Voices

Throughout his distinguished career as a journalist and film-maker, John Pilger has looked behind the 'official' version of events to report the real stories of our time. The centerpiece of this new, expanded edition of the bestselling Distant Voices is Pilger's reporting from East Timor, which he secretly entered in 1993 and where a third of the population has died as a result of Indonesia's genocidal policies. This edition also contains more new material as well as the original essays - from the myth-making of the Gulf War to the surreal pleasures of Disneyland. Breaking through the consensual silence, Pilger pays tribute to those dissenting voices we are seldom permitted to hear.

Review:

"A moral interpretation of world affairs in a cynical age" ( Independent)

"Pilger is the closest we have to the great correspondents of the 1930s... The Truth in his hands is a weapon, to be picked up and brandished and used in the struggle against evil and injustice" ( Guardian)

"Pilger's strength is his gift for finding the image, the instant, that reveals all: he is a photographer using words instead of a camera" (Salman Rushdie)

Book Description:

A collection of the highest quality journalism from one of our best long-form writers. Insightful, thought-provoking and vivid.

Book Description Vintage, London, 1992. Paperback. Book Condition: Used; Acceptable. Dispatched, from the UK, within 48 hours of ordering. The book is perfectly readable and fit for use, although it shows signs of previous ownership. The spine is likely creased and the cover scuffed or slightly torn. Textbooks will typically have an amount of underlining and/or highlighting, as well as notes. If this book is over 5 years old, then please expect the pages to be yellowing or to have age spots. Grubby book. This book is dirty and has significant shelf wear, however all text is there and readable, as such it is acceptable for sale, and is still a good read. Thanks.
