The Age of the Warrior: Selected Essays
Robert Frisk has reported from the Middle East for 32 years – more than half his life, and covered major wars, countless insurgencies and massacres. His passionate writing in this book will anger those who talk uncritically about the ‘war on terror’, who refer to torture as ‘abuse’, who call dictators ‘strongmen’ if they’re on our side and dictators if they are not. In a journalistic world in which criticism of authority is considered subversive, Fisk’s reporting is more vital than ever.
The Age of the Warrior is neither a story of unrelieved carnage nor unremitting fury. Fisk examines the use and misuse of words; the influence of fiction and cinema on our age; the need to create beauty even amid war.
Condition: Good. A book that has been read but is in good condition. No obvious damage to the book cover. No highlighting of text, no writing in the margins, and no missing pages.
