From the cover: “When James Cameron died in January 1985, Britain not only lost its most distinguished living journalist, but a great age of newspaper writing came to an end — the age of the foreign correspondent. In the course of his career, working for newspapers and also for television, Cameron covered the end of the war in Europe, the atomic tests at Bikini Atoll, and the Korean and Vietnam wars. He reported from America, India and Israel at crucial moments in their history. And few events, whether at home or abroad, whether of major political importance or minor but telling detail, escaped his shrewd eye and his humorous, committed pen.

For the last ten years of his life James Cameron contributed columns to the Guardian , and these display him at his ironical, compassionate, angry best. They have been selected by Martin Woollacott and arranged according to subject-matter, and chronologically within each subject. They are a delight to read, and a moving record of a great journalist.”
