A best-selling indictment of media complicity with international money and power from "a first-rate dissident journalist" (Robert Hughes). In these passionate reports from Vietnam, South Africa, and Burma, award-winning journalist and documentary film-maker John Pilger gives the unfiltered truth about worldwide struggles for justice and the international role of the United States and Britain. From inside "big media," he also shows how news gets buried, demolishing utopian illusions about the "media age" and the "global village." Hailed by Time Out as "the closest we have to the great correspondents of the 1930s like Ed Murrow and James Cameron," John Pilger is an unflinching crusader whose work has opened the eyes of hundreds of thousands of people. His new book, Hidden Agendas, is a guided tour through the invisible corridors of power and the forgotten stories of the powerless. With 100,000 copies already in print in the United Kingdom, Hidden Agendas is a bracing corrective to media apathy, and essential for anyone who wants to know how the world really works.
