Scott Johnson has spent much of the last decade in the Middle East, covering the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and in Africa, reporting on politics and current affairs. He has been the chief of Newsweek’s Mexico, Baghdad, and Africa bureaus, as well as a special correspondent from Paris. He was part of the team that contributed to Newsweek’s 2003 National Magazine Award for reportage of the Iraq war, and in 2004 the Overseas Press Club honored his reports on Latin America.

We talk to him about  how his childhood influenced his career and the ways journalists can do a better job of covering the totality of this country.

"The Wolf and the Watchman: A Father, A Son and the CIA" is now available in paperback.
