9781742233079: Come the Revolution: A Memoir

A rollicking tale of chain-smoking newspapermen, union leaders, revolutionaries, crooked cops, corrupt politicians, spies, dictators, and ordinary working people, this is the memoir of political journalist Alex Mitchell, who worked on several newspapers around Australia before landing in Fleet Street in the 1960s. Full of vivid anecdotes about the lives of an extraordinary range of people—including Yasser Arafat, Muammar Gadafi, Saddam Hussein, and Vanessa Redgrave—this narrative demonstrates how Mitchell's Sunday Times investigative team exposed Soviet double agent Kim Philby and how the journalist became a full-time political activist. Laying bare his life and loves as well as his past and politics with the flair of a born storyteller, Mitchell is unafraid to ask the hard questions about the world or about himself.
