    Works

    • Behind the Lines -- Hanoi, December 23, 1966 - January 7, 1967
    • Why did the North Vietnamese admit Harrison Salisbury? How do the people of Hanoi respond to American bombing? Why has the United States left certain targets of obvious military importance untouched while risking inevitable damage to homes and schools in other areas? What made the early months of 1967 a time of special opportunity for peace negotiations? What is the relationship of the North Vietnamese to China and the Soviet Union? To the Vietcong? Is there a risk of world war in the struggle for control of South Vietnam? These and other questions were answered in this book which is also an extraordinary personal narrative.
    • Marooned in Moscow: An American Journalist-Spy Caught In Russia
    • To get into any country by the back door, after having been refused permission to come in by the front way, does not sound like a simple thing to do, yet, as a matter of fact, I accomplished the feat without any great difficulty in February, 1920, when I entered Soviet Russia from Poland.
    • New Emperors: China...
    • This definitive work, based on 20 years of first-hand research and first-person interviews conducted by Pulitzer Prize-winner Salisbury, follows the lives of Mao and Deng from their rural childhood to their triumphant establishment of the People's Republic of China.
    • The 900 Days: The Siege of Leningrad [Japanese Edition]
    • 1941年から1944年にレニングラードの包囲ナチスは第二次世界大戦の最も陰惨なエピソードの一つであった。 300万人近くの人々がそれに耐え、その半数が死亡しただけで。 25年間著名ジャーナリストや歴史家ハリソンソールズベリー街ははるかにヒトラーとスターリン両方の恐怖からを持っていた、極悪と生存のこの驚くべき物語をつなぎ合わせ。 The Nazi siege of Leningrad from 1941 to 1944 was one of the most gruesome episodes of World War II.
