AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'He's been expelled from Syria on suspicion of terrorism, encountered 'Osama bin Laden' in a Tehran bazaar, been dragged from the Hungarian parliament in handcuffs and interviewed with the editor-in-chief of al-Jazeera, all during a remarkable two-year journey by wheelchair across Eurasia. Walkley Award-winning journalist Ken Haley's travels take in 41 countries and, post-September 11, turn him into an eyewitness to the 'war on terror' from the other side of the frontline.

In Emails from the Edge he portrays life in the Middle East as it really is, not as the media portray it, and draws an intriguing parallel with his own life. With great humour, and not a hint of sentimentality, he lays bare his darkest times, when he plunged over the precipice into madness, and reveals the wanderlust that led him to the heart of the world's hot spots.'
