From a base in Hong Kong he documents revolutions, politics and murders from Singapore to Korea. His shrewd assessment of events, particularly in China, presages issues affecting the world today.

About Richard Hughes

Richard Hughes, considered by most as outrageously delightful, was the inspiration for characters in novels by Ian Fleming and John le Carre. During his thirty years in the Far East his news reports were avidly read throughout the world. He is regularly mentioned in web sites and books ranging from spycraft to Sherlock Holmes to Japan. He was honoured with a C.B.E and was the dean of Asia's foreign press corps. Born in Australia in 1906 he died in 1984. Foreign Devil was originally published in 1972 and this is its first paperback publication.
