Keep Doing What You Do Mr Pilger,

This review is from: The New Rulers of the World (Paperback)
I'm reader with a similar background to John Pilger, in that I was raised in a small industrial town in Australia (I've been to Kurri Kurri from where John Pilger hails) and I moved to the UK where I have lived for over a decade. As a result, I find much in Pilger's work that resonates.
The chilling thing about the book is that, having read it when it was first published and having re-read it just the other day, I find that much of what John predicted in 2002 is undeniable fact today. That means the research was impeccable, as was the analysis.
If you are new to John Pilger's work, read everything of his that you can find. I have made a habit of clipping newspaper articles he has written and stashing them away in the back of his books. They form a solid analysis as a collection.
This book is a sourcebook of truth. Read it. Re-read it. Follow up the references. You will never see the world in quite the same light ever again. That's a good thing.
