CHRIS HEDGES
In his 20 years as a journalist for many of the most respected news organizations in the United States, Chris Hedges has reported from the world's most war-ravaged regions, from the Middle East and Central America to the Balkans and the Persian Gulf. For more than a decade, Hedges covered hot spots for The New York Times, first in 1991 in Operation Desert Storm, then in Bosnia and Kosovo from 1995-98, and more recently in Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2002, he was part of a team of Times reporters that won the Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Journalism for the paper's coverage of terrorism. The winner of numerous other awards for his coverage, Hedges was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard in 1999 and also holds a degree from Harvard Divinity School. His acclaimed book, War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning, which was published in 2002, drew on his distinguished career as a war correspondent to offer provocative new perspectives on the nature of conflict.
