The 286-page memoir, titled Mike Eghan: The Emperor’s Story — From the Centre of the World, captures the life story of Ghanaian veteran broadcaster Mike Eghan.

His television talk show, Mike Eghan Show, a GTV programme which was broadcast as part of URTNA (Union for Radio and Television Networks for Africa) was a never-to-be-missed feature in many African countries.
He has won several awards, including the Grand Medal Civil Division, for his meritorious service in the media.
In this devastating and brilliant new book John Simpson offers a compelling and cogent analysis of the West’s relationship with Saddam Hussein and Iraq, past and present.
‘You can’t really argue with much that John Simpson says-there is no foreign correspondent left on TV who has a fraction of his recognition and his credibility, a fact which may be unfair on the others, but happens to be true.’ That was Simon Hoggart reviewing Simpson’s devastating Panorama profile of Saddam Hussein, broadcast in early November 2002.
John Simpson has spent more than twenty years reporting on Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. The book is a vivid, authoritative and compellingly readable account of the West’s relationship with Iraq throughout the years that Simpson has reported on the country and on Saddam Hussein. He shows in minute detail how and why, in the wake of 11 September, the threat from Iraq seemed to be increasing and how and why the West went to war in March 2003.₵70.00Quick View
