Fallaci, who covered wars throughout the world, and was almost killed more than once while doing so, had great personal courage and strong moral conviction. She once said she conducted herself according To The credo that "disobedience toward the oppressive as the only way to use the miracle of having been born." Never shy, bestselling Italian author and journalist Oriana Fallaci was granted access to countless world leaders, politicians and other notables across the globe. Some of her most memorable interviews included in this volume are those with the Dalai Lama, Ariel Sharon, Lech Walesa, Robert Kennedy, Deng Xiao-ping, James Farmer (U.S. Civil Rights leader), Henry Kissinger, Golda Meir, Yasser Arafat, King Hussein of Jordan, Indira Gandhi, Ali Bhutto, Mohammed Riza Pahlavi (former Shah of Iran), and Haile Selassie Fallaci actually preferred to be thought of as a writer and not a journalist, and her articles show this. When writing, she included her thoughts -- passions unhindered -- on the experience of interviewing her subject. In her interviews, Fallaci was never afraid to share her opinions, unafraid of her critics. Where many journalists choose not to take a stance, Fallaci's opinions are always part of her work. She strived to go beyond the apparent -- looking for and gaining revelations from her subjects. In each interview, The descriptions are vivid and colorful with no physical detail too small or inconsequential to notice. The reader feels as if he or she was there at the interview. Eloquent and articulate, politically minded and always opinionated, Fallaci's writing has been translated from Italian into English, Spanish, French, Dutch, German, Greek, Swedish, Croatian, and many other languages.
