Veteran foreign correspondent introduces new book

Veteran ABC News foreign correspondent and Rutland Herald columnist Barrie Dunsmore will present his new book, There and Back, at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16. In an era of instant access to worldwide news, we are lucky to have voices who can speak from the vantage point of many years of on-the-ground experience. Dunsmore traveled the world for more than 30 years as a foreign correspondent with ABC News.

Barrie Dunsmore introduces his new book at Misty Valley.

The collection in There and Back offers quick and sometimes witty entrances into decades-long discussions about Middle East policy, superpower strategies and controversial domestic issues. Dunsmore comments on various aspects of recent Middle Eastern history: the Arab Spring revolutions, America’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the nuclear threats posed by Iran’s theocratic government. He also takes us through a tour de force of commentary on politics, current events, cultural phenomena and leadership within the United States.

Dunsmore reported from Washington and abroad on the policies of seven presidents from Johnson to Clinton. He traveled with them overseas and was a regular on the planes of their Secretaries of State. From 1965 to ’95 he reported from more than 100 countries on virtually every major international event from wars to summits to diplomatic shuttles.

The event is free and open to the public. A reception and book signing will follow Dunsmore’s remarks. For more information stop by Misty Valley Books, call the Bookstore at 802 875-3400 or visit or Facebook.
