Overview Salwen (communication, University of Miami) offers a critical reading of Waugh's work on Ethiopia, comparing what was reported as fact in Waugh in Abyssinia with the satirical treatment of the subject in Scoop. Waugh's snobbishness, racism, and shortcomings as a war correspondent are highlighted. Waugh's criticisms of those surrounding him-especially other reporters- are likewise relayed. In passing, the book provides a look at the Italian adventure in Ethiopia.
