Cambodia : the betrayal by John Pilger( Visual )

The world was horrified to learn of the Holocaust which had taken place in Cambodia at the hands of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. This film exposes the hypocrisy of the Western nations which continue to support Pol Pot, despite the atrocities of his regime. Not only has Pol Pot been allowed to occupy Cambodia s seat in the United Nations, but the Western nations have been secretly selling them weapons for use in their civil war. Despite the loss of a fifth of their population, the resilient Cambodians have made significant strides to rebuild their society. But they fear the threat of a second Holocaust

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scotland: An Encyclopedia of Places & Landscapes is the first authoritative and comprehensive guide since Francis Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer, published in 1882-5." "Arranged in an alphabetical format, over 8,000 entries cover in detail the nation's cities, towns and villages, mountains, lochs and rivers, visitor attractions, monuments and historic sites. Each entry places its subject in an appropriate historical, geographical, architectural or environmental context, providing information for a wide range of users, including families, students, tourists, journalists and government officials." "Street plans are included for all the Scottish cities and 100 Scottish towns, highlighting places of interest, public buildings and main traffic routes." "There is a fully indexed colour atlas of Scotland at the back of the book."--Jacket
Inside Burma : land of fear : a special report( Visual )

This news report tells of the opression suffered by the Burmese people and the measures the government took to supress a democracy uprising in 1988. While much of the world has heard of Tiananmen Square in China, the Burmese democracy revolt has had less publicity due to greater censorship in Burma. The film was shot secretly and smuggled out of Burma
Death of a nation : the Timor conspiracy : a special report by John Pilger( Visual )

7 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 7, 1975 Indonesia secretly -- but with the complicity of the Western powers including the US, the UK, and Australia -- invaded the small nation of East Timor. Two Australian television crews attempting to document the invasion were murdered. In 1993, with the Indonesian army still occupying the country, John Pilger and his crew including director David Munro, slipped into East Timor and made this film. In the intervening 18 years, an estimated 200,000 East Timorese -- 1/3 of the population -- had been slaughtered by the Indonesian military. The CIA has described it as one of the worst mass-murders of the 20th century. Pilger tells the story using clandestine footage of the countryside, internment camps and even Fretlin guerrillas, as well as interviews with Timorese exiles, including Jose Ramos Horta and Jose Gusmao, and Australian, British, and Indonesian diplomats. Nixon had called Indonesia the "greatest prize in southeast Asia" because of its oil reserves and other natural resources. Even though Indonesia had no historic or legal claim to East Timor, it was convenient for diplomats to declare that East Timor, just gaining its independence from Portugal, would not be a viable state. However the lie was given to this argument when Australia and Indonesia signed the Timor Gap Oil Treaty and carved up the huge oil and gas reserves in the seabed off East Timor. None of the politicians from that period -- President Ford, Henry Kissinger, Daniel Moynihan, Margaret Thatcher, John Major, Gough Whitlam -- has clean hands. The Indonesian military used US and British planes to bombard the island, while the defense ministers proclaimed ignorance. As Pilger gets an Australian diplomat to admit, East Timor was considered "expendable." But no one watching the massacre in the Dili cemetery can excuse the geopolitical machinations that led to this genocide

Do you remember Vietnam? : a report by John Pilger( Visual )

4 editions published between 1978 and 2018 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1978, three years after the fall of Saigon, John Pilger went back to Vietnam to find out what had happened under the new regime. He talks with a young tour guide at a war crimes museum, who had been imprisoned in the infamous US tiger cages. He follows a former North Vietnamese soldier into the underground base where he spent 20 years crawling through tunnels undetected. He visits the street in Hanoi that was the target of the largest single aerial bombardment in history. And he shows us the re-education camps where former drug addicts, prostitutes, South Vietnam soldiers, and others are being taught what to think. An he reminds us of the long history of Vietnam's wars for independence. 44% of Vietnam's forests have been decimated, poisonous chemicals have produced babies with deformations, 58,000 Americans and 2-5 million Vietnamese lost their lives. And all of this suffering was for what? "To stop the spread of Chinese communism" was the rationale. And yet, Pilger argues, if we had let them form their own independent state in the late 1940s, what probably would have emerged is what is emerging now -- a kind of Asian Yugoslavia

Year zero : the silent death of Cambodia : a report by John Pilger( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the first complete report of the atrocities committed by the Khmer Rouge and the devastating affects of US bombing in Cambodia during the Vietnam War, Year Zero: The Silent Death of Cambodia is an important and historic document of the grim reign of Pol Pot and the world's response of indifference and inaction. Year Zero was 1975, the end of the secret US bombing campaign against the Viet Cong that saw 100,000 tons of bombs dropped over Cambodia, and the emergence of the Khmer Rouge party as a ruling force. That year saw the desertion of the capital of Phnom Penh and the displacement of some 2.5 million people, the majority of whom would soon go missing. Pilger explores the roots of the US bombing campaign that began in 1969, contrasting it sharply with powerful footage of sick and starving Cambodians and interviews with relief workers with UNICEF and the Red Cross as well as imprisoned members of Pol Pot's regime. At the time of its first broadcast in 1979, Year Zero was for many the first glimpse of a harrowing injustice that had been played out with little fanfare. John Pilger lays bare the entire chain of events, from the removal of King Norodom Sihanouk to ensuing famine and genocide under the Khmer Rouge. The film is both disturbing and poignant, a sobering portrait of Cambodia's recent history
