John Pilger is one of the worldâ€™s renowned investigative journalists and documentary film-makers. In this fully updated collection, he reveals the secrets and illusions of modern imperialism. Beginning with Indonesia, he shows how General Suhartoâ€™s bloody seizure of power in the 1960s was part of a western design to impose a â€˜global economyâ€™ on Asia. A million Indonesians dies as the price for being the World Bankâ€™s â€˜model pupilâ€™. In a shocking chapter on Iraq, he allows us to understand the true nature of the Westâ€™s war against the people of that country. And he dissects, piece by piece, the propaganda of the â€˜war on terrorâ€™ to expose its Orwellian truth. Finally, he looks behind the picture postcard of his homeland, Australia, to illuminate an enduring legacy of imperialism, the subjugation of the First Australians.
