‘ROBERT FISK HAS BEEN REPORTING FROM THE MIDDLE EAST WITH INCOMPARABLE DEPTH AND UNDERSTANDING…AND EXTRAORDINARY COURAGE’ NOAM CHOMSKY

The final work from award-winning journalist and commentator Robert Fisk, following on from the highly acclaimed The Great War for Civilisation.
An extraordinary chronicle of Fisk’s trademark rigorous journalism, historical analysis and eyewitness reporting. Fully immersed in the Middle East and critical of the West’s ongoing interference, Fisk was committed to uncovering complex and uncomfortable truths that rarely featured on the traditional news agenda.

With a foreword from fellow Middle East correspondent and former colleague Patrick Cockburn, Night of Power delivers an essential and final account from one of the world’s finest journalists, and proves itself timely as ever.

‘Every sentence of Robert Fisk radiates his loathe of wars and the inevitable dehumanization they produce, which makes his (sadly) last book an everlasting warning, beyond its value as a meticulous historical recount and analysis of today’s events’ Amira Hass, journalist, Haaretz

‘Fisk’s reporting is clear-eyed and unflinching, a model for what journalists should aspire to practice in their ever more important and widely threatened craft’ Anthony Arnove, editor, Iraq Under Siege and author, Iraq: The Logic of Withdrawal
