Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Exquisitely written with Paxman's muscular prose and themes; Through The Volcanoes echoes South America's troubled past in a book that is part history, part reportage.

There is something of Road To Wigan Pier in Paxman's writings and he never forgets his sense of duty to the people he meets who are less fortunate than him (along with a sneer for some of the less-able dictators and terrorists roaming Guatemala et al.) Good.

HASH(0x9209be58) out of 5 stars A brilliant book. 12 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Jeremy Paxman shows himself to be an extremely talented and vivid writer, as well as a brave journalist. His journeys through some of the world's most dangerous places are compulsive reading, while he manages to make clear the complex and often stunning situations in Central America. An invaluable book.
