This is an auction for A SECRET COUNTRY by John Pilger.

Amazon.com reviews:

"FIVE STARS!!! If you want to know what venal cowards and greedy dirty dealers Australian politicians have been in selling the country out to America and Britain, read this. It'll take away all your illusions about what makes Australia tick. It shattered and shamed me as an Australian. I wish this could be a prescribed schoolbook wherever Australian history is taught."

"A SECRET COUNTRY takes the reader beyond the euphemistic and romantic popular misconceptions of Australia to reveal the often invisible past and the present subterfuge of the country. The author recognizes that since its very beginning the history of white Australia has been shrouded in secrecy and silence. He remarks that it is a country with perhaps more cenotaphs per head of population than any other and not one stands for those aborigines who fought and died for their land. After the bicentennial "Celebration of a Nation" the racial and political tragedy of the aboriginal people, from whom Australia was taken violently 200 years ago, continues. It portrays a country of stark contrasts, of visionaries and criminals whose secrets are exposed. The author has twice won British journalism's highest award, that of Journalist of the Year, for his work in Vietnam and Cambodia. He has won the International Reporter of the Year Award and the United Nations Association Media Peace Prize."
