Wars & Dictators

     I grew up in the United States in the 1960s, watching the civil rights struggle and the Vietnam War as a child.  Later, years at a Quaker school (Swarthmore College, in Pennsylvania) and teaching as a Peace Corps volunteer brought no notion that I should spend a good part of my life covering the wars of my adult years.

     But, working as a journalist in 1982, and soon learning of the brutalities of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, I found there could be no choice but to go.

     I’m gathering on this website a few stories from Afghanistan and other troubled places where I’ve reported. You can find them in the list at right.
