About the Author

Uli Schmetzer began his journalistic career in 1960 at the ‘Sun-Pictorial’ in Melbourne, Australia. In 1963 he joined the ‘Sydney Sun’ where he wrote, between 1965-66, a daily column called ‘Uli Schmetzer on the Fringe’. In 1966 Schmetzer went to Mexico where he joined Reuters, covering Mexico and Central Latin America and Cuba. In 1970 he became a Reuters staff correspondent. He was bureau chief in Venezuela and later in Rio de Janeiro covering South America. In 1977 he resigned from Reuters and worked freelance based in Rome for U.S., South African, British and Australian newspapers. In 1986 the ‘Chicago Tribune’ offered him the staff job as Rome bureau chief covering also the Arab world and periodically Israel. In 1988 he was assigned as Asia Correspondent based in Beijing with a second office in Manila, covering South East Asia and the Pacific until 1996. That year he became South East Asia Correspondent based in Manila (1996-98). He was appointed New Delhi bureau chief (1998-2000) responsible for the Indian subcontinent. In 2000 he was appointed as Bureau Chief in Tokyo. Though based in various capitals, Schmetzer was constantly on the road as a ‘fireman’ or ‘parachute’ journalist flying into trouble spots across the world. Schmetzer has won three in-house rewards for foreign reporting and an Alternative Pulitzer for his report on the CIA trying in vain to buy back at twice the original price from Afghan warlords the Stinger missiles given to them gratis during the Afghan war against Soviet occupation. Schmetzer retired in 2002 but was kept on staff as a Special Correspondent with the ‘Chicago Tribune’ until 2004. He now lives part of the year in Italy, Australia and the Philippines, writing books and commenting on world events on his website Uli Schmetzer’s books include: • ‘Times of Terror: Notebooks of a Foreign Correspondent’ – A startling memoir, spiced with revealing anecdotes and disturbing insights into news, and its manipulation by profits, politics and lobby groups. • ‘Gaza’ – A novel following the journey of three friends confronting the 60-year-old Israel-Palestine conflict. • ‘The Chinese Juggernaught: How the Chinese Conquered Southeast Asia’ – How the Chinese diaspora in SEA and Australia have economically and sometimes politically dominated a minority. • ‘The Lama's Lover and Other Stories': Ten short stories, in which we meet extraordinary people affected by political and social injustices.
