Towards good news

Shooting History - Jon Snow

Snow's autobiography is a personal view of the news, complete with intense and angry commentary. As a teenager he went to Uganda under the auspices of VSO, an experience which set his feet on the path to a quiet battle for global social justice…

Diving forward and backward in time and from the intimate to the planetary, I found Snow's book slippery, forcing me to stay focussed and aware. I was gripped and inspired by his commitment, putting aside extravagant ambitions in favour of a middle way and a just world. I was very sorry to finish it.
