Robert Fisk has reported from the Middle East for over 30 years — during that time he has covered 11 major wars, countless insurgencies and massacres. In this authoritative collection of his journalism he mounts a resistance to those who talk uncritically of the ‘war on terror’, who refer to torture as ‘abuse’, and to dictators as ‘strongmen’ — provided they’re on our side. But alongside this provocative subject matter appear more personal stories — a trip to the grave of the Titanic passengers, considerations of cinema and fiction and accounts of the lives of Fisk’s family: his father who served in the First World War and his grandfather, a first mate on the Cutty Sark.

In a journalistic world where criticism of authority is considered subversive, The Age of the Warrior is a vital, provocative and insightful work from one of our most popular and indefatigable journalists.
