This is a book that everyone should read. It is well written (if a bit longer than strictly required in places) and covers some of the most embarrassing issue plaguing the narrative we live through.
For UK readers, the first chapter has special value both highlighting the subservience of UK's rulers to the US im actual facts rather than impressions and the dirty corners that make it possible to by bypass parliament,showing that the state system of one of the exporters of democracy in 500lbs parcels falling from the sky is systemically undemocratic.

Having read other John Pilger books, including "Hidden Agendas" and "The New Rulers of the World", Pilger continues to excel in "Freedom Next Time" exposing what is really going on the world and telling you what the mainstream news won't. If you have never read any of Mr Pilgers books then this a good one to start with. The chapters about Palestine, Diego Garcia, Afghanistan and South Africa are very well researched and in depth raising awareness of the plight of ordinary people affected by the tragic events in these countries while his interviews with politicians very revealing, exposing there lies and hypocrisy. The chapter on India though is far too short, feeling as though it was put in as an afterthought. Overall though a good read.

Just reading the introduction -which includes a one or two paragraph summary of each section- is worth the price of the book (if rather scary). Am halfway through now as I find it too important to rush, and it's usual Pilger, just like in his films: particularly well researched, well and clearly presented, and he remains focused on positive possibilities even while describing the dire situations. His insights, intelligence, and drive for justice are inspirational.

Another first rate book by the Master of Investigative Journalism.
Pilger lets us know the" full" storey, and the truth behind the issues, that many of us read about ,
but never get the full facts from the popular press and media.
At a time when large elements of the press stand exposed ,as purely marketers of superficial
populist rubbish, it is essential that we have "real" investigative journalists such as Pilger to turn to,
for the truth.

An honest journalist who hasn't sacrificed his soul to the Illuminati. As with all the lies they are not the illuminated they are the opposite. The are un illuminated.

I am enthralled by this book, am only into the Israel/Palestine chapter and so far the book is a real eye opener, but written in a balanced non hysterical way. Makes you question yourself and your opinions as a person and also raises questions at our actions as a nation.
I really think everyone would benefit from reading this. Really shows how appalling governments (of all persuasions) can be, especially against the little people with no voice.
I greatly look forward to reading the rest of the book and very much commend the author.
