Pilger's book covers various different stories effectively, but the common theme is exploitation of people and global resources, firstly by European imperialism, then by it's American successor.
Some principal areas covered are: Burma and Indonesia - very useful for anyone considering an 'exotic' holiday in either location; the effects of sanctions on Iraq's civilian population; the British armaments industry and how during the past 20 years it has been the only manufacturing actively supported by government; the demise of journalism and the rise of 'infotainment'.
There are also precious few journalists willing to expose the lies beneath the veneer of Blair's so-called 'new' Britain. There are also some incisive insights into his native Australia. Pilger writes with compassion and dry wit. An essential book.
Enjoy this great book! Brought to you by SMIRK
