Author Bio
Christopher Hitchens
Christopher Hitchens has been a book reviewer for the esteemed British journal the New Statesman and has written for several American magazines, including Vanity Fair and The Nation, where he has written the "Minority Report" column--in his words, "an attempt to mount a Left critique of society and politics." In his books, Hitchens has written on issues as diverse as Britain's obligation to return the Elgin Marbles to Greece, the conflicts in the Middle East, and Anglo-American relations; but Hitchens is perhaps more well-known for his scathing attacks on Princess Diana, Mother Teresa, Bill Clinton, and Henry Kissinger--whom he just about calls a war criminal. It was a surprise to many of his friends when he openly supported the war in Iraq; and his book GOD IS NOT GREAT was seen by many as a direct, and sometimes intemperate, attack on religion and believers. It infuriated those who may have never read or even heard of him before. Hitchens may have been at his best in his many public appearances and debates as well as in the media, where his erudition and rhetorical skills were on full display--to the delight if his audiences--and where he retreated not an inch from the tone and substance of his controversial writings. An Englishman by birth and upbringing, Hitchens attended Balliol College of Oxford University, where he studied PPE--Politics, Philosophy, and Economics. He came to America in the early 1980s, living first in New York City and then in Washington, D.C. In December 2011, Christopher Hitchens died from complications of esophageal cancer.
