Mort Rosenblum has reported on war and peace for 58 years. He went to Africa for Associated Press in 1967, then covered Vietnam and roamed Asia before moving to Argentina at the start of its "dirty war." After a year at the Council on Foreign Relations, he went to Paris as AP bureau chief, then editor of the International Herald Tribune. AP named him special correspondent in 1981 to cover major stories around the world, including Bosnia, Somalia, two Iraq wars and Afghanistan. Independent since 2005, he travels from bases in Paris and Provence, with regular trips to his home in Baja Arizona. His 13 books range from the best-selling OLIVES, a James Beard winner, to a textbook on journalism and reportage of international affairs. He has written for the New York Times, Foreign Affairs, the New York Review of Books, Harper's, Le Nouvel Observateur, Monocle and Bon Appetit, among others. He directed an award-winning series for the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists on looting the seas. (a proposed book, Odious Beast: Adventures of a Newshound, never made it into print as his agent at the time didn't like dogs.) www.mortrosenblum.net
