John Pilger: Freedom Next Time

Freedom Next Time


John Pilger is one of the world's pre-eminent investigative journalists and documentary film-makers. His best-selling books of reportage, which include Heroes and Hidden Voices, have in the words of Noam Chomsky 'been a beacon of light in often dark times'. In Freedom Next Time he looks at five countries, in each of which a long struggle for freedom has taken place; in each the people, having shed blood and dreams, are still waiting. In Afghanistan, Iraq and South Africa there has been the promise of hope, and even an 'official' freedom, but the reality of these divided societies is that they are still waiting for real freedom. In Palestine, the cycle of violence continues with no resolution in sight. And the island of Diego Garcia, in the Indian Ocean, is a microcosm of the ruthlessness of great powers. The island was sold by the British to the American military in the 1960s. The indigenous population, descended from slaves, were forcibly removed to the slums of Port Louis in Mauritius. They have continued to fight for the return of their homeland ever since - three years ago the High Court granted them the right of return, but this has subsequently been blocked. The island remains the US's third biggest military base; a base from which they are able to launch attacks against the Middle East. Once again John Pilger gives a voice to the people living through these momentous times and, in gripping detail, shows us the lives behind the headlines.

"John Collier's wild and sardonic tales, which were for many years a fixture in the pages of The New Yorker, are, in the opinion of his many devoted admirers, as good as - indeed better than - the best of Saki and Roald Dahl. In stories that explore the logic of lunacy, presenting the most fantastical occurrences as commonplace fact, Collier not only tickles the fancy, but tests our nerve, making us wonder just how deep and firmly placed are the foundations of the (seemingly) real world. Here longtime Collier fan Ray Bradbury re-introduces this singular modern genius.
