GREAT READING. GREAT PHOTOS: This issue’s cover story recalls the furore after legendary Life magazine photographer Gordon Parks went to Brazil to take photographs of a boy who lived in a slum. Other top stories include CJ Hopkins’ advice to US voters before the mid-term election, summed up in two words – Don’t Bother!, Jonathan Cook’s journey through the streets of Hebron with an ex-soldier heading a campaign to end the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, and Chris Hedges’ report of the homeless men, women and children, who are ‘collateral damage of the corporate state’.
Our travels also take us to Australia, where Catherine Moirreveals the story behind Australia’s World War I internment camps, and to Syria, where Conn Hallinan shows us the confusing chessboard of nations that is fighting for dominance. In addition, we have John Pilger on a new book on the UK media, Caitlin Johnstone on Internet censors, George Monbiot on the media’s cult of personality. And, we also have stories about obscenity, military families and John Lennon.
