  1. Beskrivelse

    The compelling story of the first Australian to break into Fleet Street s elite corps of foreign correspondents, this powerful and gripping biography narrates Chinese Morrison s life. A strong sense of courage and devotion to reporting the truth led Morrison to expose the Australian Kanaka slave trade; he worked as a correspondent for the "London Times" in the decadent and dangerous Chinese capital of Peking; he helped to organize the defense of the legations during the 55-day siege of the Boxer Uprising; he then, as adviser to the fledgling Chinese Government, was a pivotal figure in the fall of the last Emperor and the birth of the Chinese Republic. This fascinating account stands as a testament to his lifeone that set the benchmark for correspondents to have courage, truth, and a need for expeditions."
