One of his many documentary films is the 1974 'Palestine is Still the Issue" (Part I) and Part II in 2002. Some of his books include: 'Freedom Next Time', 'Tell me No Lies' and 'The New Rulers of the World'. Of Pliger, Noam Chomsky wrote: 'A beacon of light in often dark times ... a constant inspiration.'
