The World from Down Under PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The World from Down Under free pdf George Negus is one of Australia's most respected journalists. As the host of SBS TV's Dateline, and in his earlier international programs Foreign Correspondent and 60 Minutes, George has traversed the world, meeting and interviewing politicians, philosophers, peace-brokers, philanthropists, presidents, princes and pundits. From Al Gore and Bob Geldof to Mikhail Gorbachev and Colonel Gaddafi, from the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu to Naomi Wolf, Richard Branson and Cherie and Tony Blair, the list of Negus interviewees is as varied as it is extraordinary. In The World from Down Under George draws on his travels and his extensive journalistic experience to take on climate change, poverty, war, indigenous affairs, 9/11, the global financial crisis, China, race, religion, the role of women - and lighter stuff. Locking horns with the world's movers and shakers, he looks affectionately, if a bit sceptically, at how the land Down Under, its politics, its people and its culture fits - or doesn't fit - into the wider global scheme of things. In his earlier bestselling books The World from Italy and The World from Islam, George gave us his unique 'Australian internationalist's perspective' on post-communism, the world game of football, God, the Muslim faith and even terrorism. Now, in the same easy, conversational, but provocative style via his 'chat with recent history' he unravels the world's big issues - the things that concern, perplex and provoke us all.
