This is another paragraph Product Description: 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.
