Thought Leaders : Graham Hancock

Controversial bestselling author Graham Hancock has spent his life at the edge. Whether he was reporting the Somali-Ethiopian war of 1977 from the front lines and giving the London Sunday Times a radically different take on the news story of the day, or exploring the wild frontiers of Pakistan and Afghanistan for his first book, Journey Through Pakistan, published in 1982, or challenging the orthodoxy with his 1989 book Lords of Poverty that exposed the ugly underbelly of the multi-billion dollar foreign aid business.

Hancock’s early years as a writer were filled with adventure and a willingness to take personal risks to bring back the real story. In the 1980s an encounter with a monk in the war-torn Ethiopian city of Axum lit the fuse for the radical new direction that his work would take from 1989 forwards examining the hidden mysteries of the human past.
