Praise for Hidden Agendas

“Pilger is the closest we have to the greatest correspondents of the 1930s... The truth in his hands is a weapon, to be picked up and brandished and used in the struggle against evil and injustice”

Guardian

“Pilger's strength is his gift for finding the image, the instant, that reveals all - he is a photographer using words instead of a camera”

Salmon Rushdie
