For nearly 40 years, Robert Fisk has been one of the most important reporters of Middle East conflicts. He has an uncompromising ethical sense, which led him to leave the Times for the Independent in the 1980s to avoid having to submit to political pressure. Fisk tirelessly continues to venture into conflict zones in search of stories that capture the complexities of the situation on the ground. Looking back on Fisk’s career from the beginning, when he was a reporter of the troubles in Ireland, Yung Chang lets Fisk do the talking as he follows him in his work and questions him about his vision of journalism and his views of the world today. Both humble and meticulous, the reporter delivers an invaluable lesson in history and journalism. (RIDM 2019, BD)
