In "The New Rulers of the World" the award-winning journalist John Pilger selects from his recent "Guardian" and "New Statesman" essays on power, its secrets and illusions. The title is from his television film about the mythology of globalization; in which he revealed how General Suharto's bloody seizure of power in Indonesia in the 1960s was part of a Western design that was the beginning of globalization in Asia. In this book, John Pilger discloses more of Indonesia's secret history, as well as describing the price paid by the people of Iraq for the West's decade-long embargo. The author also contemplates the September 11th terrorist attacks on America and the causes.
"Pilger and others have helped expose the realist myth of impersonal laws governing actions of states. They rake the muck on which the power and wealth of states and corporations are founded, and the stench is awesome." - Irish Times "Assuming US propaganda is accurate President George W. Bush is intending to bomb Iraq as part of his war on terrorism. If you want to know just how big a mistake that would be, read John Pilger's latest tour de force." - New Scientist "Pilger is unique not just for his undimmed anger but also for the sharpness of his focus, the range of targets that he chooses and the meticulous precision with which he hits them - often with their own words." - New Internationalist "The issues Pilger addresses are fundamental to any notions we have of establishing genuine international justice and democracy, and this book should be compulsory reading for all." - The Big Issue "... on the side of the angels" - The Guardian
