Robert Fisk - Pity the Nation : Lebanon at War

A book, a non-fictional embodiment of a nation's sufferings, a state's (?) arrogance; all through the seasoned eye of a dedicated correspondent.

Quote(s) of interest:

I suspect that is what journalism is about - or at least what it should be about; watching and witnessing history and then, despite the dangers and constraints and our human imperfections, recording it as honestly as we can. (Preface. Pg. x)
