In this powerful book, journalist and film maker John Pilger strips away the layers of deception, dissembling language and omission that prevent us from understanding how the world really works.

From the invisible corners of Tony Blair's Britain to Burma, Vietnam, Australia, South Africa and the illusions of the 'media age', power, he argues, has its own agenda. Unchallenged, it operates to protect its interests with a cynical disregard for people - shaping, and often devastating, millions of lives.

By unravelling the hidden histories of contemporary events, Pilger allows us to read between the lines. He also celebrates the eloquent defiance and courage of those who resist oppression and give us hope for the future. Tenaciously researched and written with passion and wit, Hidden Agendas will change the way you see the world.

Pilger is the closest we have to the greatest correspondents of the 1930s... The truth in his hands is a weapon, to be picked up and brandished and used in the struggle against evil and injustice * Guardian *
Pilger's strength is his gift for finding the image, the instant, that reveals all - he is a photographer using words instead of a camera * Salmon Rushdie *
A modern interpretation of world affairs in a cynical age * Independent *

Hard to read about such greed and self-interest. But it resonates with information from another highly respected author. Chose this author because I valued the Investigative Reporting he has done. Very... More
