9780007192540: Shooting History: A Personal Journey

Jon Snow is perhaps the most highly regarded newsman of our time. His vivid personal chronicle is filled with anecdotes and pithy observations, and delightfully records his life and times since becoming a journalist in the early 1970s. He reported widely on Cold War conflicts in Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Angola, and Central America before becoming a resident correspondent in Washington D.C. in the 1980s. He has pertinent things to say about how the increasing world disorder came about following the fall of the Berlin Wall, how the West’s constant search for an enemy has helped unhinge the world, and how and why the media have, in general, been less than helpful in drawing attention to key political and global developments.

Review:

`He's much more than a newsreader. He understands what's happening and he provides intellectual underpinning. We know what he stands for and relate to it...and trust him as a man.' Observer`A compelling read, weaving boys' own adventures with impassioned, often angry commentary.' Mail on Sunday`Snow is the closest thing we have to a modern-day George Orwell...A vivid, accurate, hones guide to the key world events from 1975.' Independent`Pacy, candid and anecdote-laden, Snow's account of a childhood spent in awe of his father is a delight.' Daily Mail
