Christopher Hitchens' disturbing report from Vietnam in 2006 on the continuing devastation caused by the use of Agent Orange in the Vietnam war.

Christopher Hitchens is a British-born political journalist and reviewer, who has been based in the USA for over 25 years (he is now a US citizen). His journalism, invariably polemical, has appeared in a variety of publications, mainly in the USA, but in the UK too. Arguably is the fifth collection of his journalism - the columns defined as 'Essays' in the book.

The five 'Essays' selected for Book Of The Week all originally appeared in The Atlantic Journal.

"...one of the most stimulating thinkers and entertaining writers we have"

The New York Times

"...this is a tremendous book"

The Daily Telegraph

Written by Christopher Hitchens.
