North Korea Journal by Michael Palin (2019) Michael Palin is (at time of writing) 76 years of age. His career as a comedian, actor and adventurer of sorts has taken him across Africa, to both Poles, through the Himalayas, Latin America and now into The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). This book is his […]
King Of Spies by Blaine Harden Donald Nichols was a working class boy who came from a troubled background in pre-Second World War United States.

Blood and Ashes, Blood Tracks, by Matt Hilton For the first time since this site began, Rebel Voice has taken the unprecedented step of providing two reviews from the same author in the one article.

Evo Morales is well respected in both his own country and abroad.
