He's faced his own execution, been fingered as an assassin, and had guns jammed to his stomach and head. John Scully's remarkable career as a television journalist has taken him to seventy countries and enabled him to create award-winning news stories and documentaries for such giants as the British Broadcasting Corporation and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

In this extraordinary memoir, Scully argues with terrorists in the Middle East, dodges landmines in Africa, bribes the Vatican, and travels with Evangelical Christians on a bizarre mission to Jonestown. From Vietnam to Beirut to the present troubles in Iraq, Scully examines terrorism, its roots, and its reasons as he tries to answer the question, who is a terrorist'. But Scully digs even deeper, exploring the disastrous effects of colonialism from the Russians in Chechnya to the British in India and the United States in Iraq.

Dramatic, deeply insightful, and often hilarious, Am I Dead Yet? A Journalist's Perspective on Terrorism points out just how little Americans have learned from history.
