We celebrate the writings of SM Ali, a pioneering Asian journalist, in this compilation of his final work. His career spanned some of the most momentous decades of the region and touched the pages of many of Asias premier publications.
A "must" for all members of the development community and media practitioners . . . also ideal as a text in journalism courses.
SM Ali was the Publisher and Editor of the Daily Star, and immediately prior to that, UNESCOs Regional Communication Advisor for Asia and the Pacific.
This book is a collection of the column which he wrote at the Daily Star which was entitled "My World". In the first piece which he wrote for the column, S.M. Ali had this to say about his task as a columist:
"One starts a new piece of writing, with mild trepidation and ends it with a sense of relief, said a friend at a writers workshop we attended years ago. Another countered, no one starts it with a feeling of excitement, but ends it in a mood of shattering disappointment.
