Peadar King, director of KMF Productions and member of the Ubuntu Network steering committee, gave the following presentation at NUI Galway's Development Education Day on 13 February, 2013:
Peadar's book 'What in the World? Political Travels in Africa, Asia and The Americas' stems from the television series 'What in the World?' which has been broadcast on RT� television over the past decade. Set in Africa, Asia and the Americas, the book features seldom-heard human stories: stories of intense pain and suffering, of small triumphs and occasional advances, of betrayal and complicity, of utter resilience and stout defiance. In 'What in the World?' Peadar provides an up close and compelling look at the human cost of flawed ideologies and distorted priorities.
The book is available in Easons book shops and should also be available in local bookshops. It can also be purchased directly from The Liffey Press.
Sean Farrell, retired Irish diplomat, writing in the Irish Independent, 6th April 2013:
"this book is an eye-opener on the human cost to those at the bottom of the current way the world's economy is managed to sustain the lives of those on the top. Like the series, it is disturbing and thought provoking"
