Rated 5 out of 5 by from I immediately snapped this up Anything written about Fisk is gold. The book and his columns from The Independent are no different here. He is the leading author based in Beirut and arguably all of the Middle East. This is one of the best column books you will read on the region. Highly recommended.

Editorial Reviews

'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.' MetroPraise 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.'
