Jeremy Bowen - The Making of the Modern Middle East - A Personal History

Recently appointed as the International Editor for BBC News, award winning journalist Jeremy Bowen joined the BBC in 1984 and has been a war correspondent for much of his career. He has reported from more than 70 countries, predominantly in the Middle East – Afghanistan, Lebanon, Chechnya, Assad’s Syria and Netanyahu’s Israel – the Balkans and latterly from Ukraine. Based on his acclaimed podcast: Frontlines of Journalism, his new book takes us on a journey through the Middle East and explores the power games that have wreaked devastation on civilians as their leaders jostle for political, religious and economic control.
