Paperback, Slightly Used, In Excellent Condition, Barely Read Afro- Asia in Upheaval: A Memoir of Front-line Reporting Paperback – 2008 by Amando Doronila (Author) Paperback: 353 pages Publisher: Anvil Publishing (2008) Language: English ISBN-10: 9712721353 ISBN-13: 978-9712721359 The true journalist is really what Amando Doronila calls "a historian on the run." As eyewitness to events unfolding, a reporter needs to be well-informed on the events he covers; acquainting himself with the principal players who can change the way a country is reshaping itself. Since Doronila's self-described task is to make sense of foreign events as they affect the ordinary Filipino in the sixties, the journalistic effort is both understanding the puzzle and then explaining how it all fits together. This, Doronila undertakes with great finesse. No finer eyewitness to history can be found than Amando Doronila who combines scholarship with the smell of gunpowder and the rattle of tanks in the troubled streets of Prague or the sight of the muddy rice paddles of Vietnam. The eyewitness manages to bring us back to a time and place when the defeat of communism was not yet all that certain, nor how dictatorships and democracies would fare. Doronila manages to engage us in a story whose ending we already know. How we got from there to here is what Doronila sheds light. - A.R. Samson Columnist, Business World
