Insight with Jon Lee Anderson

Jon Lee Anderson of the New Yorker talks to Allan Little about the new left-wing movement in Latin America

One of America’s most respected reporters, Jon Lee Anderson of the New Yorker talks to Allan Little about the new left-wing movement in Latin America, the friendship between Fidel Castro and his protégé Hugo Chavez and reaction in the US to the perceived threat from the south.

Jon Lee Anderson has been writing about conflict zones for over 20 years: from El Salvador to Uganda, Ireland to Israel. His book Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life cemented his reputation as a great writer and correspondent. Latin America remains one of Anderson’s key areas of interest as well as Iraq and Afghanistan.

He is the author of Guerrillas: Journeys in the Insurgent World; The Lion’s Grave: Dispatches from Afghanistan; Insight on The Fall of Baghdad and, with his brother Scott Anderson, War Zones and Inside the League.

The son of a U.S. diplomat, Jon Lee Anderson was raised and educated in South Korea, Colombia, Taiwan, Indonesia, Liberia, England and the United States.
