Summary
It is a story that Robert Fisk has been reporting for over thirty years. His masterful narrative spans the most volatile regions of the Middle East, chronicling with both rage and compassion the death by deceit of tens of thousands of Muslims, Christians and Jews. Robert Fisk’s remarkable history is also the tale of a journalist at war – learning of the 9/11 attacks while aboard a passenger jet, reporting from a bombed-out Baghdad, interviewing Osama bin Laden – and of the courage and frustration of a life spent writing the first draft of history
Summary
A journalist in the Middle East for more than thirty years brings his intimate knowledge of the region to address the recent historical and political events in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Algeria, Israel, and Lebanon
