The new rulers of the world by John Pilger( Book )

52 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Pilger's television film The New Rulers of the World was, among much else, a debunking of the myth of globalisation. Reporting from Indonesia, he revealed how General Suharto's bloody seizure of power in the 1960s was part of a western design that was just the beginning of the imposition of a 'global economy' upon Asia." "Now, he has collected both original work and expanded versions of his recent essays on power, its secrets and illusions in a book that illuminates the nature of modern imperialism. He discloses how up to a million Indonesians died as the price for being the World Bank's 'model pupil', and the price paid by the people of Iraq for the West's decade-long embargo on that country. He returns to his homeland, Australia, to look behind the hype that led up to the Millenium Olympics in Sydney and to reflect on Australia's continuing subjugation of its Aboriginal people. And, following the September 11 attacks on America and the bombing of Afghanistan, he describes the new thrust of American power and its goal of 'world order', as well as the propaganda that justifies and drives it."--Jacket

Freedom next time : resisting the empire by John Pilger( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Freedom Next Time, John Pilger looks at five countries where a long struggle for freedom has taken place, and in which the people, having shed blood and dreams, are still waiting. In Afghanistan, Iraq, and South Africa there have been promises of hope, and even of official freedom, but the reailty of these divided societies is that they are still waiting for real freedom. In Palestine, the world's longest occupation continues with no resolution in sight. The island of Diego Garcia, in the Indian Ocean, has become a microcosm of the ruthlessness of great power. Sold by the British to the American military in the 1960s, the indigenous population was forcibly removed to the slums of Port Louis in Mauritius. They have continued to fight for the return of their homeland ever since. Three years ago the High Court granted them the right of return, but this has subsequently been blocked. The island remains the U.S.'s third biggest military base, from which they are able to launch attacks against the Middle East. Pilger gives a voice to the people living through these momentous times and he illuminates the true enemies of freedom and salutes those who refuse to be victims
Hidden agendas by John Pilger( Book )

25 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book John Pilger strips away the layers of deception, dissembling language and ommision that prevent us from understanding how the world really works. From the invisible corners of Tony Blair's New 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
Tell me no lies : investigative journalism that changed the world by John (Edited By) Pilger( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prison scandals, terrorism, corporate fraud, election riggingmost likely you have heard something of the sort in the last ten minutes. But what is truth and what is part of the great washout of biased reporting? A celebration of lucid investigative reporting, selected by titan of the craft John Pilger, could come at no better moment. Pilger's book travels through contemporary history, from war correspondent Martha Gelhorn's wrenching 1945 account of the liberation of Dachau to Edward R. Murrow's groundbreaking excavation of McCarthyism to recent coverage of the war in Iraq. This homage to brave, often unsettling coverage features a range of great writing, from Seymour Hersh's Vietnam-era muckraking to Eric Schlosser's expos of the fast-food industry to preeminent theorist Edward Said's writing on Islam and terrorism. Unrepentant in its mission to expose the truth behind the messages that politicians, warmongers, and corporate-run media inculcate, Tell Me No Lies is essential for anyone who wants to understand the world around them objectively and intelligently. It's not just a collection of high-quality reporting, but a call-to-arms to all who believe in honesty and justice for humanity

Tell me no lies : investigative journalism and its triumphs by John Pilger( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In selecting for this anthology articles, broadcasts and book extracts that have got behind the facade of official silence to reveal important and disturbing truths, John Pilger is paying his own professional tribute to some of the men and women he most admires." "The book ranges from across many of the critical events, scandals and struggles of the past fifty years, from the scenes described by Martha Gellhorn at the liberation of the death camp at Dachau in 1945, to the bloodshed caused by the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Along the way it bears witness to epic injustices committed against the peoples of Vietnam, Cambodia, East Timor and Palestine." "John Pilger sets each piece of reportage in its context, often offering personal insights into the writer, and introduces the collection with a passionate essay arguing that the kind of journalism he celebrates here is being subverted by the very forces that ought to be its enemy."--BOOK JACKET

Propaganda blitz : how the corporate media distort reality by David Edwards( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shows that the corporate media does not just 'spin' the news--it fundamentally distorts everything it touches, hiding the real issues from public view, and often completely reversing the truth. Edwards and Cromwell uncover a storm of top-down campaigns behind war reporting from Iraq, Syria and Palestine, as well as the destruction of the credibility of figures on the left, including Jeremy Corbyn, Russell Brand and Hugo Chavez. Exposing propagandists at the top levels of the BBC, as well as their reporting on the Scottish independence referendum, the dismantling of the NHS and looming climate chaos, the authors explain the real meaning of 'objective' journalism, expose the fake news about 'fake news' and outline a model for anti-business media activism. --From publisher description
The war you don't see by John Pilger( Visual )

21 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The War You Don't See traces the history of 'embedded' and independent reporting from the carnage of World War I to the destruction of Hiroshima, and from the invasion of Vietnam to the current war in Afghanistan. As weapons and propaganda are ever more sophisticated, the very nature of war has developed into an 'electronic battlefield'"--Videodisc container label
Utopia( Visual )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Utopia is an epic production by the Emmy and Bafta winning film-maker and journalist John Pilger. Utopia is a vast region in northern Australia and home to the oldest human presence on earth. 'This film is a journey into that secret country, ' says John Pilger in Utopia. 'It will describe not only the uniqueness of the first Australians, but their trail of tears and betrayal and resistance - from one utopia to another'. Pilger begins his journey in Sydney, where he grew up, and in Canberra, the nation's capital, where the national parliament rises in an affluent suburb called Barton, recently awarded the title of Australia's most advantaged community. Barton is named after Edmund Barton, the first prime minister of Australia, who in 1901 introduced the White Australia Policy. 'The doctrine of the equality of man, ' said Barton, 'was never intended to apply to those who weren't British and white-skinned.' He made no mention of the original inhabitants who were deemed barely human, unworthy of recognition in the first suburban utopia. A global campaign illuminated apartheid in South Africa. No such opprobrium has been directed at Australia, where black Australians are imprisoned at up to eight times the rate of blacks in apartheid South Africa. Instead, Australia's post card image is that of the 'lucky country'; and indeed few societies are as wealthy, if you leave out the original inhabitants is that of a third world country. In the town of Wilcannia, New South Wales, the average life expectancy of men is 37. This is the secret of apartheid Australia. Utopia is both a personal journey and universal story of power and resistance and how modern societies can be divided between those who conform and a dystopian world of those who do not. Utopia draws on people and places Pilger filmed 28 years ago during his long association with the indigenous people of his homeland. The evidence he produces is often deeply moving and shocking

11 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pilger conducts interviews with William Kristol, Douglas Feith, John Bolton, Wesley Clark, and others. In these interviews he discusses the ideas of pre-emptive military action, the real motives behind the military activities in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the historical context of the United States' military policy
