MEDIA REVIEWS
Reminiscent of a sabre-toothed, unexpurgated Dickens -- Robert Carver * New Statesman *
A moving account of the abuse of human rights in Australia, all the more valuable because it is written by an Australian writer -- Graham Greene
Pilger is a first-rate dissident journalist... Presents a harsh narrative of class, race and power; of the oppression and resistance, the betrayal and amnesia, that lie behind the sunny illustions of the Australian self-image -- Robert Hughes
This is a patriotic book in the best sense, written in the belief that Australia deserves not old bromides and stereotypes, but the respect of critical appraisal... A necessary book for those of us who believe in the redeeming power of truth * Daily Telegraph *
Pilger's Australia is so different from the image conveyed abroad by films and TV soap operas, so different indeed from the way many Australians see themselves, as to be another country...but none of it alters one starkly apparent fact - he still loves the place. * Sunday Express *
