CHASING CHAOS: a Foreign Correspondent's Memoir Sean Kelly chased chaos in Congo, Nigeria, Vietnam, Laos, El Salvador and Zimbabwe, as well as -- ironically -- Washington, DC. He covered rebels in Africa, civil wars in Indochina, peace talks in the Middle East, and scandal in the White House. Not all of it was grim and daring. There was time for humor, compassion, even romance along the way. Central Africa was his first assignment as a foreign correspondent and the 1965 coup d'etat in the Congo was the first of many abrupt regime changes he reported from the scene. Others included Watergate and President Richard Nixon's fall from power. During the 1970s, he covered the recurring chaos in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. His final assignment was reporting the 1994 election of Nelson Mandela in South Africa. What happened in between fills the pages of this book. Read them and find out!
