Description:
Love, Poverty, and War: Journeys and Essays is a collection of essays and reportage by author, journalist and literary critic Christopher Hitchens.

The title of the book is explained in the introduction, which states that "an antique saying has it that a man's life is incomplete unless or until he has tasted love, poverty, and war."

The 'Love' section includes essays on Hitchens' favourite literary figures such as Evelyn Waugh, James Joyce, Leon Trotsky and Rudyard Kipling. 'Poverty' includes critiques of the likes of Mother Teresa, Michael Moore, Mel Gibson and David Irving.

The 'War' section is divided into writings 'Before September' and 'After September', showing Hitchens' reaction to the Terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The first section includes reports from North Korea, Cuba and a long piece on the Kurdish people and diaspora written for National Geographic in 1992. The second section features all of Hitchens' post 9-11 writing in chronological order, and shows his disagreements with much of the left on that issue, plus his critique of Islamofascism and his support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
