Folowing on from "Heroes", this book includes articles/essays from the award-winning journalist. The pieces in the book look at the Gulf War, world poverty, Cambodia, England, Australia and analyses why there are so few distant voices of dissent in the media the world over.
Throughout his distinguished career as a journalist and film-maker, John Pilger has looked behind the 'official' version of events to report the real stories of our time. The centerpiece of this new, expanded edition of the bestselling Distant Voices is Pilger's reporting from East Timor, which he secretly entered 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 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.
