Love, Poverty, and War by Christopher Hitchens
Book DescriptionI did not, I wish to state, become a journalist because there was no other profession' that would have me. I became a journalist because I did not want to rely on newspapers for information. Love, Poverty and War: Journeys and Essays showcases America's leading polemicist's rejection of consensus and clich, whether he's reporting from abroad in Indonesia, Kurdistan, Iraq, North Korea, or Cuba, or when his pen is targeted mercilessly at the likes of William Clinton, Mother Theresa ("a fanatic, a fundamentalist and a fraud"), the Dalai Lama, Noam Chomsky, Mel Gibson and Michael Bloomberg. Hitchens began the nineties as a "darling of the left" but has become more of an "unaffiliated radical" whose targets include those on the "left," who he accuses of "fudging" the issue of military intervention in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq. Yet, as Hitchens shows in his reportage, cultural and literary criticism, and opinion essays from the last decade, he has not jumped ship and joined the right but is faithful to the internationalist, contrarian and democratic ideals that have always informed his work.

For the Sake of Argument, Paperback (December 2014)
A classic Hitchens renewed in trade paperback. "The test of this kind of book is for the reader to be able to open it anywhere and be drawn into the argument; it's a test that Hitchens passes time and time again... He can be devilishly funny, but he is also capable of writing with acid seriousness." The Independent
