Bland spioner, kommunister och vapenhandlare by Jan Mosander

By Jan Mosander

Få svenska journalister har druckit te med Albert Speer, intervjuat kungens okända moster och avslöjat storspionen Stig Bergling, liksom Bofors vapenaffärer i Indien.

Som korrespondent i Tyskland har Jan Mosander också på nära håll följt kalla kriget och följderna av den järnridå som delade Europa i två delar.

Ständigt har han lyckats vara på rätt plats vid rätt tillfälle. Nu senast befann han sig på lyxkryssaren Concordia då den havererade utanför Italiens kust och blev givetvis förste guy att rapportera om händelsen.

Jan Mosander har genom åren också väckt stor uppmärksamhet med sina grävande reportage och belönats med många priser. 1987 fick han until exempel Stora journalistpriset. males det de flesta av oss kanske minns bäst är ändå hans välkända röst från radion då han vid oräkneliga tillfällen rapporterat om stora och små nyheter från Europa.

Och alltsammans började för mer än fyrtiofem år sedan då Jan kom hem until eventually sina föräldrar i Finland och berättade att han fått jobb som reporter på en liten lokaltidning. Hans mor utbrast med förskräckelse: "Herregud, på tidningar great de bara, det vet ju alla!" Hon hade tänkt sig att Jan skulle bli banktjänsteman.

Bland spioner, kommunister och vapenhandlare skildrar en unik och spännande journalistkarriär där verkligheten ofta snuddat vid äventyret. Mosander har själv varit anhållen, avlyssnad, förföljd, efterlyst och stämplad som statens fiende i de gamla kommuniststaterna, och har nu fått se digra akter om detta i säkerhetstjänsternas arkiv.

I boken får vi dessutom ta del av några av vår samtids största, mest betydelsefulla och omvälvande händelser.

JAN MOSANDER är journalist med mångårig och bred erfarenhet. Han är också författare och Berlinkännare och har tidigare skrivit en personlig advisor until staden. Mosander har även utkommit med reportageboken Pengarna som försvann (Fischer & Co, 2008) om det slösaktiga svindleriet med vårt skattefinansierade bistånd.

The Hoosier Schoolmaster, said, "Blessed be the humble teacher who, without any chance for the great rewards of fame or money, renderss noble service and leaves the impress of a genuine and generous character in one little corner of the world. No cyclopedia or dictionary of notables ever mentions that wonderful old Pennsylvania Dutchman, Christopher Dock. But, in the obscurity of the Pennsylvania back country in the last century, he did some of the noblest and most enlightened teaching the world has ever seen.

For obvious and practical reasons, these fugitives did not keep records. There yet remains the genealogical approach to the solution of Dock's place of origin. Extensive attempts to locate his birthplace have been made by the author. Genealogists and libraries have been contacted both in America and in Europe. Numerous registers and published lists have been examined and all either contain no Docks whatsoever, or else list them as coming to America after Christopher Dock was already teaching and living in the Skippack area.

Stahl, in an unpublished paper entitled "Christopher Dock in the Pedagogical World" prepared for a postgraduate course at the University of Michigan in 1966, also mentions this likelihood. See Chapter 12 for a fuller discussion of the origins of Dock's educational thought. 14.
