9780007270873: The Age of the Warrior: Selected Writings

A selection of Robert Fisk's finest 'Comment' pieces from the Saturday Independent.

Robert Fisk has amassed a devoted readership over the years, with his insightful, witty and always outspoken articles on international politics and mankind’s war-torn recent history. He is best known for his writing about the Middle East, its wars, dictators and international relations, but these ‘Comment’ articles cover an array of topics, from his soldier grandfather to handwriting to the Titanic – and of course, President Bush, terrorism and Iraq.

Review:

‘What Fisk writes, in his often brilliant, highly authoritative prose is a wake-up call. Read ‘God damn that democracy’ and ‘Gold-plated taps’ back to back and you have, in a nutshell, the brutal truth of the Middle East problem succinctly expressed, together with proof that Fisk at his best is a hard act to match.’ Scotsman

‘Brilliant. Fisk at full throttle. 500 pages of his truthful scorn left me wanting more. O brave old world, that has such journos in it.’ Independent

‘Can work brilliantly: a piece on a racist headline superbly captures the hypocrisies in Western attitudes towards the war on terror. Infuriating and inspirational in equal measure.’ Metro

Praise for ‘The Great War for Civilisation’:

‘Brilliant…this powerfully-written book is filled with accounts of horror, pain and injustice. His triumph is that he has turned a slightly dubious and over-romanticised craft into a honorable vocation.’ Independent

‘His forte is straight reporting, such as his three interviews with Osama bin Laden. At least as good are his meetings with Saddam Hussein, Khomeini and Sadeq Khalkhali, the hanging judge of the Iranian revolution, and his close-ups of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the launch of Saddam's war against Iran, an ambush by Islamists of an Algerian police patrol, and a lift into trouble in an Apache attack helicopter on the Iraq/Turkey border.’ Guardian

About the Author:

Robert Fisk is a bestselling author and journalist based in Beirut as Middle East correspondent of the ‘Independent’. He has lived in the Middle East for three decades and holds more British and international journalism awards than any other foreign correspondent. His last book, ‘The Great War for Civilisation’, a history of his career and the numerous conflicts he has covered, was published internationally to great critical acclaim. He is also the author of ‘Pity the Nation’, a history of the Lebanese war.
