Product description

Product Description

For more than a decade, Jacques Pauw has traversed his native continent in pursuit of warlords and drug traffickers, child soldiers and charlatans, adventure and anarchy. What he found was a rich array of personalities and a panoply of stories, ranging from the profoundly tragic to the intensely personal. Pauw’s stories range from South Africa to Rwanda, from Sierra Leone and the Sudan to Mozambique. Readers are taken behind the scenes of sensational news reports with compassion, humour and occasional cynicism and emerge in the knowledge that, even if it’s true that there is nothing new out of Africa, the writer has found fresh ways to present time-honoured tales of love, life, misery and mortality.

About the Author

Jacques Pauw moved into the electronic media in 1994 after having cut his teeth on investigative journalism in print. A founder member of Vrye Weekblad, he lifted the veil on dirty tricks funded and authorized by the apartheid government. He has published two books on the subject: In the Heart of the Whore and Into the Heart of Darkness. Pauw has travelled the length and breadth of Africa to bring television viewers stories about conflict, corruption and human rights abuses. Currently executive producer of the hard-hitting weekly television series Special Assignment, he has won numerous South African and international journalism awards, twice being named CNN's African Journalist of the Year and also winning the Vodacom Journalist of the Year award.
