Synopsis

"Looking for Trouble" is a vivid account of 35 years in journalism by a former foreign correspondent and bureau chief of "The Daily Telegraph". It recounts an extraordinary and eventful period in the years before instant communication and mass TV coverage and provides a riveting first-hand record of history unfurling during many of the world's most dramatic events of the Cold War era. Richard Beeston describes what the restless, nomadic life of a foreign correspondent is like, providing colourful and lively portrayals of daily life in "Fleet Street" and communist Moscow; of his years with a radio station for MI6 in the Middle East; and of his acquaintance with the notorious Soviet agent, Kim Philby. Richard Beeston led a truly extraordinary life, superbly captured in this acclaimed memoir - now published in paperback for the first time.

Richard Beeston began his long and distinguished career as a foreign correspondent working for a clandestine Arabic radio station run by MI6 during the Suez War. From 1961 to 1986 he was the Daily Telegraph's correspondent for Beirut, Nairobi, Moscow and Washington and in the late '80s the Daily Mail's Washington correspondent. He has covered many significant world events, including the collapse of the Belgian Congo, East Africa's post-independence upheavals, Middle East revolutions, the Vietnam War, Watergate and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Since 1990 he has worked as a freelance writer for The Times, Daily Telegraph and Saga Magazine. He also writes obituaries for The Times covering statesmen, politicians, diplomats and crooks - specialising in the Middle East, Russia and the USA.
