Award-winning war correspondent ROBERT FISK speaks in Berkeley, celebrating his new book of selected essays on the Middle East and other topics, THE AGE OF THE WARRIOR (Nation Books).
ROBERT FISK is seven-time winner of the British Press Awards' International Journalist of the Year. From the tangled mess in Iraq to the slums of Gaza, Fisk's keen eye and searing insight into this region is what he is best known for. In a journalistic age in which the mildest criticism of authority is considered subversive, Fisk writes and speaks with an unusual freedom about the injustices he has witnessed firsthand, always insisting that we recognize the suffering of our fellow human beings.
