9780099266112: Heroes

The heroes of John Pilger's narrative are the many ordinary people he has witnessed coping with their lives in difficult and often brutal conditions: dissidents in the Soviet Union; victims of conflicts in Vietnam, Cambodia, Africa, India, the Middle East and Central America. They also include the Irish labouring generation of his great-great-grandfather, transported in irons to Australia for uttering 'unlawful oaths'.

It is a vivid, engrossing and sometimes blackly amusing personal story covering the periods for which his journalism is renowned. John Pilger has witnessed many of the major world upheavals of the past thirty years, as well as the daily realities of injustices normally hidden from society's view. His reporting of these events has always been distinguished by his tenaciously researched facts - especially facts that governments and powerful interests would prefer to keep secret - and by his unerring and always compassionate pursuit of the truth.

Review:

"John Pilger is the antidote to easy, comfortable thinking, to smugness, to ignorance. He is necessary" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Pilger has a gift for finding the image, the instant, that reveals all. He is a photographer using words instead of a camera" (Salman Rushdie)

"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 used in the struggle against injustice" ( Guardian)

Book Description:

The bestselling book from one of the finest investigative journalists of our time.
