Review

His story is a triumph - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

an exciting read - Better Reading

Product Description

Minefields is a compelling exploration of a foreign correspondent's life - proof of Hugh's belief that 'if you go looking for trouble, you'll probably find it'.

Over nearly forty years as a journalist and foreign correspondent, Hugh Riminton has been shot at, blown up, threatened with deportation and thrown in jail. He has reported from nearly fifty countries, witnessed massacres in Africa, wars and conflicts on four continents, and every kind of natural disaster.

It has been an extraordinary life. From a small-town teenager with a drinking problem, cleaning rat cages for a living, to a multi-award-winning international journalist reporting to an audience of 300 million people, Hugh has been a frontline witness to our times. From genocide in Africa to the Indian Ocean tsunami, from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to slave-buying in Sudan, Hugh has seen the best and worst of human behaviour. In Australia, he has covered political dramas, witnessed the Port Arthur massacre and the Thredbo disaster and broken a major national scandal. His work helped force half a dozen government inquiries. His story is entertaining, deeply personal and quietly wise.

'An impressive career. His story is a triumph of substance over style.' Sydney Morning Herald

'Hugh is an icon of Australian journalism' Michael Ware, former Iraq correspondent for TIME and CNN
