This is an auction for DISTANT VOICES by John Pilger. reviews:

"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. Breaking through the consensual silence, Pilger pays tribute to those dissenting voices we are seldom permitted to hear."

"FIVE STARS!!!! Journalism at its worst is froth and bubble, at its best it is a dissection of the truth and in the hands of John Pilger, it is definitely the latter. A skilled wordsmith, he has long been recognized as a 'voice in the wilderness.' His articles and essays as paraphrased in Distant Voices are a cry for reason amidst a world of chaos. The current crisis in East Timor receives ample coverage in Pilger's book, as does the other side of the Gulf War where he redefines the term 'surgical strike' and 'carpet bombing.' The Cambodian crisis of the eighties is exposed as a giant sham and the heartache of Bosnia is laid out for us in black and white. Not content with hot zones, he has also exposed the New Elite of his own world, the powerful media magnates who control the flow of information to the global community. The New Britain of the nineties had its roots in the Thatcherism as unveiled in Distant Voices. But amongst the doom and gloom he is able to season it with bursts of black hearted comedy and satirical exposes of our sacred cows; Disney comes off second best. When information is power and controlled by an elite oligarchy, Pilger is one of those who seeks to give power back to the people, as they cry with distant voices."
