Christopher Dickey is the Paris-based World News Editor for The Daily Beast and an NBC/MSNBC contributor. Previously he worked for Newsweek magazine as Paris Bureau Chief and Middle East Editor, and before that for The Washington Post as Cairo Bureau Chief and Central America Bureau Chief. Our Man In Charleston, a New York Times espionage best seller, is the story of an unlikely Englishman who hated the slave trade and stood between the Confederacy and recognition by Great Britain. His actions helped determine the fate of a nation. In this masterfully told story, Christopher Dickey introduces Consul Bunch as a key figure in the pitched battle between those who wished to reopen the floodgates of bondage and misery, and those who wished to dam the tide forever. Featuring a remarkable cast of diplomats, journalists, senators, and spies, Our Man in Charleston captures the intricate, intense relationship between great powers on the brink of war.
