Distant Voices by John Pilger

Book Description

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.

UK Kirkus Review » Pilger writes superbly about the scars left across the world by free-market economics. In 1992, Distant Voices told the world of East Timor's writhing under the Indonesian heel. Read it now to discover why the world's dithering as the Timorese were slaughtered was nothing less than culpable negligence. Harrowing, and quite brilliant. Review by ALEX BENZIE Editor's note: Alex Benzie's latest novel is The Angle of Incidence. (Kirkus UK)
