Robert Fisk lecture - podcast
7 March 2006
Robert Fisk is arguably the most distinguished foreign correspondent of his generation. As a writer for London’s Independent newspaper, he has witnessed many of the most important and savage events in recent history, reporting on two US wars in Iraq, two Afghan wars, the Israel/Palestine conflict, Israel’s invasion of Lebanon, and the civil war in the former Yugoslavia.
On Monday, 6 March 2006, Fisk gave a sold-out public lecture in the Seymour Centre, as part of the Sydney Ideas series.
Fisk is well known for his frontline journalism. He has been bombed in Iraq and stoned in Afghanistan. He is one of the few Western journalists to have interviewed Osama Bin Laden – not once, but three times.
For the past two decades, Fisk has also been the most compelling voice against British and American intervention in the Middle East. His most recent book is The Great War of Civilisation: the Conquest of the Middle East.
