by John Pilger - £12.99 Vintage (1992)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780099152316 | ISBN 10: 0099152312
Expatriate journalist and film-maker John Pilger writes about his homeland with life-long affection and a passionately critical eye. In this fully updated edition of A Secret Country, he pays tribute to a little known Australia and tells a story of high political drama.
"Pilger is a first-rate dissident journalist. Tenaciously researched, fiercely argued, both unsparing and patriotic, A Secret Country presents a harsh narrative of class, race and power; of the oppression and resistance, the betrayal and amnesia, that lie behind the sunny illusions of the Australian self-image."
