LSE Space for Thought Literary Festival 2011: 'Crossing Borders' POLIS Literary Festival Panel Discussion - New Ways to Witness Wars
"Three of the best British conflict reporters describe three very different ways to tell the stories of three very different war-zones. Fiction, biography and reportage are used to tell gripping narratives of some of the most brutal places in the world. These are the deep, nasty, real stories of Mexico's drug wars, an African coup, and the so-called war on terror in Afghanistan. One is a novel, another a personal biography and another a searing piece of investigation. Each brings a fresh perspective to the strange new wars of the 21st century."
