John Pilger is one of the world's renowned investigative journalists and documentary filmmakers. In this classic book, with an updated introduction, he reveals the secrets and illusions of modern imperialism. Beginning with Indonesia, he shows how General Suharto's bloody seizure of power in the 1960s was part of a western design to impose a 'global economy' on Asia. A million Indonesians died as the price for being the World Bank's 'model pupil'. In a shocking chapter on Iraq, he delineates the true nature of the West's war against the people of that country. And he dissects, piece by piece, the propaganda of the 'war on terror' to expose its Orwellian truth. Finally, he looks behind the picture-postcard image of his homeland, Australia, to illuminate an enduring legacy of imperialism: the subjugation of the First Australians.

Publisher reviews

"John Pilger's work has been a beacon of light in often dark times. The realities he has brought to light have been a revelation, over and over again, and his courage and insight a constant inspiration. What makes John Pilger a truly great journalist is his conscience and bravery." (Noam Chomsky) - "What makes John Pilger a truly great journalist is his conscience and bravery." (Martha Gellhorn) - "John Pilger is fearless. He unearths, with steely attention to facts, the filthy truth, and tells it as it is. I salute him." (Harold Pinter) - "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 a first-rate dissident journalist..." - Robert Hughes "Pilger is surely the most outstanding journalist in the world today." (Guardian)
