Vintage, 1998 - Broadcast journalism - 687 pages
In his powerful new 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 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 interest with a cynical disregard for people - shaping, and often devasting, 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. Tenaciosly researched and written with passion and wit, "Hidden Agendas" will change the way you see the world.
