Pity the Nation will rank among the classic accounts of war in our time, both as historical document and as an eyewitness testament to human savagery. Written by one of Britain's foremost journalists, this remarkable book combines political analysis and war reporting in an unprecedented way: it is an epic account of the Lebanon conflict by an author who has personally witnessed the carnage of Beirut for over a decade.

Edward Mortimer, Financial Times Review from previous edition Robert Fisk is one of the outstanding reporters of this generation. As a war correspondent he is unrivalled.

Amanda Mitchison, Sunday Correspondent Overall Fisk makes enthralling reading, and his account of modern Lebanon stands out as the most interesting book on the war in recent years.

Edward Said, Independent on Sunday Robert Fisk's enormous book about Lebanon's desperate travails is one of the most distinguished in recent times, as well as one of the most anguished and hard-bitten ... Fisk's reportage has a power which one expects but so often does not get from journalists. His account of the 1982 Israeli invasion is the best that has been published.

Time Out a truly tremendous book.

New Statesman and Society a hugely and immensely moving book.

Simon Jenkins, Sunday Times a devastating witness to the failure of politics to guard mankind against itself.

Patrick Seale, Observer the sheer accumulation of eye-witness reports has a sort of unstoppable power to convince.

Jeremy Atiyah, Sunday Telegraph Robert Fisk's poetically written Pity the Nation not only covers his experience of the war, but also digs for the heart of Lebanon.
