Meet the Writers

In a week where we have seen Zimbabwe implode, we feature a man whose career was defined by events there. He was the editor of the influential ‘Observer’ newspaper for nearly two decades, he’s been described as the ‘Rocky Marciano of newspaper politics’ and in his new book he recounts adventures and misadventures during 60 years on Fleet Street – including his encounter with Emmerson Mnangagwa, the man behind the assumed military take over in Harare.

The Foreign Desk

Since the Second World War Japan has been a pacifist nation. But during that time it has built up an impressive defence force that, if it was a fully fledged military, would be the eighth largest in the world. In an ever more unstable region is it time for this global power to fight for itself or will that only add to the instability? Christopher Lord is joined by Alessio Patalano, Yuka Kobayashi and John Nilsson-Wright.
