Odd Karsten Tveit

“Of all Middle East Correspondents, Odd Karsten Tveit is uniquely qualified — as both journalist and historian — to report on the tragedy of a war whose roots lie deep in the history of colonialism, nationalism and Islam” writes The Independent-journalist and author Robert Fisk. Tveit’s earlier books include: A pattern for defeat (Cappelen 1985), All for Israel (Cappelen, 1986), Anna’s House (Cappelen, 2000), War and Diplomacy (Aschehoug, 2005) for which he was awarded with Brage Prize for best Norwegian non-fiction book and Goodbye, Lebanon (Aschehoug, 2010).
