9780099387213: Distant Voices

Throughout his distinguished career as a journalist and film-maker, John Pilger has looked behind the 'official' versions of events to report the real stories of our time.

The centrepiece of this new, expanded edition of his bestselling Distant Voices is Pilger's reporting from East Timor, which he entered secretly 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 all 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.
