For the Sake of Argument: Essays and Minority Reports
Atlantic Books, 4. des. 2014 - 465 síður
The global turmoil of the late 1980s and early 1990s severely tested every analyst and commentator. Few wrote with such insight as Christopher Hitchens about the large events - or with such discernment and wit about the small tell-tale signs of a disordered culture. First published in the early 90s, the writings in 'For the Sake of Argument' range from the political squalor of Washington to the twilight of Stalinism in Prague, from the Jewish quarter of Damascus in the aftermath of the Gulf War to the embattled barrios of Central America.
