The Age of the Warrior: Selected Writings

by Robert Fisk - £14.99  HarperCollins Publishers (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780007270873 | ISBN 10: 0007270879

Robert Fisk has reported from the Middle East for over 30 years - during that time he has covered 11 major wars, countless insurgencies and massacres.
 
In this authoritative collection of his journalism he mounts a resistance to those who talk uncritically of the 'war on terror', who refer to torture as 'abuse', and to dictators as 'strongmen' - provided they're on our side. But alongside this provocative subject matter appear more personal stories - a trip to the grave of the Titanic passengers, considerations of cinema and fiction and accounts of the lives of Fisk's family: his father who served in the First World War and his grandfather, a first mate on the Cutty Sark.
 
In a journalist world where criticism of authority is considered subversive, The Age of the Warrior is a vital, provocative and insightful work from one of our most popular and indefatigable journalists.
