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." - Robert Hughes.

"A moving account of the abuse of human rights in Australia, all the more valuable because it is written by an Australian writer." - Graham Greene.

"Reminiscent of a sabre-toothed, unexpurgated Dickens." - Robert Carver, New Statesman.
