Political Journalism


Who loves ya, baby?
What are the must-read books? Who are the must-read writers? I'm not really interested in articles, but I guess if anyone can think of some particularly good long form pieces then that'd be cool too.

Someone recommended ryzard kapucinski to me a whole ago, I got one of his books but got bored after a few pages.

Bruce chatwins collected essays are OK, but dunno if you would say they are political, tho the one on indira gandhi is quite interesting.

Probably the best is vs naipauls collection of essays, again not strictly speaking political, but it's got a really good essay on Michael x

There used to be this wicked blog called The Kirkpatrick Mission, not sure if you ever heard of it?
