5.0 out of 5 stars The most important book of a generation
A collection of the best works of investigative journalism from the past 60 years curated by John Pilger, arguably the best of them all.
Starting from the Second World War and a report on the aftermath of Hiroshima, through various takes on Vietnam, Iraq and other areas of terrible injsutices around the world, the book is brilliantly edited and written.

1.0 out of 5 stars Read the contents before buying.
I should have read the contents before I bought the book.

Pilger is limited in the range of topics he covers. Too much war and poverty - and far too much about the Middle East

Every edition of Private Eye contains a wider variety of investigations.

What about the glory days of the Sunday Times Insight team and their team headed by Clive...

This review is from: Tell Me No Lies: Investigative Journalism and its Triumphs (Paperback)
This is is what real journalism is all about!!!!

It punches you in the gut with the truth and just as you try to catch your breath it hits you again and again!!

John Pilger & his colleagues who have collaborated here are a world apart from the poor embedded journalists who peddle the state view!

5.0 out of 5 stars A most insightful text, 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pilger has chosen well. His intro is full of insights into the modus operandi of the dirty digger.
What he does through this book is to put journalism under the microscope. When it works
properly we learn deep truths about the human condition but it can put at risk the writer's
own freedom and/or life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to comprehend..., 18 Aug 2012

This review is from: Tell Me No Lies: Investigative Journalism and its Triumphs (Paperback)
I think we have all heard something about all of the shocking historical events covered in this book, but I felt I needed to know a little bit more about what really happened, not just what we were all brain-washed to believe went on. This book provides a short introduction to each event from the author and then provides extracts from books written by different individuals on things such as Dachau, Vietnam, Cambodia, East Timor, Apartheid, Lockerbie, Iraq, The Miners Strike and much more.
The book is a real eye-opener to the disgraceful behaviours and underhand tactics of the people we as individuals trust to govern and run our countries. Read it and enlighten yourselves on what really goes on behind the scenes in the 'Land of the Free'.....
You will also be shocked to see how far governments such as our own will go to turn a blind eye to murder and atrocity in the name of protecting economic interests in the name of greed...

This review is from: Tell Me No Lies: Investigative Journalism and its Triumphs (Paperback)
THIS BOOK DOES WHAT IT SAYS ON THE COVER. IT IS AN IN DEPTH REPORTAGE OF MANY EVENTS WORLD WIDE OVER 70 YEARS WHICH EXPOSES THE HYPOCRACY AND VENAL INTENTIONS OF GOVERNMENTS,INDIVIDUALS AND FOREIGN POLICY. IT ENGAGES THE MIND AND EMOTIONS TO GREAT DEPTH.A MUST READ FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN WORLD HISTORY AND POLITICS.

This review is from: Tell Me No Lies: Investigative Journalism and its Triumphs (Paperback)
Another excellent work from our greatest investigative journalist.
A very compelling read, which gives the full truth sadly lacking in the
establishment controlled media.
We need Pilger, and many more like him at this time in our history,
when so much misinformation is pushed.
A great and informative read .
