9780763624934: War in the Middle East: A Reporter's Story: Black September and the Yom Kippur War

An award-winning journalist offers a reporter's-eye view of the Middle East conflict, from BLACK SEPTEMBER TO THE YOM KIPPUR WAR to events of the present day.

In 1970, when the Jordanian civil war known as Black September began, U.P.I. correspondent Wilborn Hampton was sent to report on unfolding events. Holed up in the InterContinental Hotel and caught in the crossfire, he managed to get the story out. Three years later, dispatched to Israel to cover the Yom Kippur War, the reporter took it on himself to drive to the front lines. Now the acclaimed author of KENNEDY ASSASSINATED!, MELTDOWN, and SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, relays his on-the-spot experiences covering two pivotal wars, while offering readers a clear, balanced overview of the issues that have plagued the Middle East for decades and continue to this day.
Back matter includes a bibliography and an index.

About the Author:

Wilborn Hampton is the author of KENNEDY ASSASSINATED!, MELTDOWN, and SEPTEMBER 11, 2001. He began working as a reporter at U.P.I. in 1963 and has more recently worked as an editor and critic at the NEW YORK TIMES. He lives in New York.

From Booklist:

Recalling experiences as a reporter assigned to cover the 1970 Jordanian civil conflict dubbed Black September, and the Yom Kippur War that began in October 1973, Hampton not only presents a clear summary of the issues that provoked each outbreak of violence but also provides both personal slant and a sense of immediacy to his account of events. Although not as broadly focused history, it serves as supplementary reading to the likes of Richard Worth's Arab-Israeli Conflict (2006). Hampton's memories of being trapped in the heavily shelled city of Amman, and later of venturing into the Sinai and Golan Heights, will give students an idea of the sights, sounds, smells, and general climate of danger, as well as his struggles as a journalist with censors and other officials to get the story out. Photos are scattered throughout, and a brief bibliography of adult books rounds out the work. Peters, John
