    great examples of what journalsim can be, not like it is any, at least in usa politkovskaya reported most at least towards the end of her life about russo chechen wars and the nasty nasty things going on there both by the russian govt and the freedom fighters fighting now for now, oh, about 800 years stly this book are translated reprints of her articles for a moscow paper funny, fairly balanced, hard hitting news she was murdered for.

    This is a collection of news stories by the assassinated Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya It should also be emphasized that she is only one of several journalists who have been killed in Russia in recent years.It is than hinted at in this book that Russia, under Putin, is regressing democratically and becoming and totalitarian The long and authoritarian past of Russian history is re emerging The war in Chechnya illustrates this well Ms Politkovskaya documents the continual atrocities and [...]

    If you weren t already aware, the former Soviet Union is corrupt Very, very corrupt At least that s what Politkovskaya thought and I for one am inclined to believe her Every stereotype that defines Russian culture in my mind the secrecy, stoic military guards wearing thick wool hats while surrounded by a thick haze of cold air and cigarette smoke, alcoholism, inept government workers and oligarchs trailed by bodyguards in ard motorcades well, they all kind of crop up innocently in the book like [...]

    American news sucks It does It really does It use to be okay if you had cable Then Al Gore brought the International News Network and turned it into Current which is a waste of space , then the BBC American Newscast on BBC America went on PBS Lying people, it is not the small newscast It is only carried by one local PBS network where I live on my cable I have access to three, not counting secondary channels , and on PBS it is only half an hour, not the HOUR it was on BBC America It s not quite a [...]

    The I read Anna Politkovskaya s work the I realize what an immense loss her death was especially to a world grappling with terrorism It s hard for me to think of someone I admire She represented the honor and conscience of Russia, and probably no one will ever know the source of her fanatical courage and love of the work she was doing Liza Umarova, Chechen singerShe s the journalist who returned time and time again to Chechnya, reporting on the atrocities occurring there under the auspices of [...]

    While any Politkovskaya book is an emotionally intense experience, this one is particularly wrenching it begins with articles she wrote during the final years of her life, including the articles that may have led to her murder, and ends with tributes some heartfelt, some grudging paid to her after her death by her friends, admirers, and enemies Ramzan Kadyrov and Vladimir Putin s official statements are both included The final impression is one of a person of superhuman forthrightness and integr [...]

    Hard to rate The subject matter is heavy, dark and translated from Russian, so its dense, as well I wanted to read about the journalist out of curiosity and as research for the next book I m writing.

    Greg
    Note This is copied from the review on my blog worldwritsmall.wordpressIs Journalism Worth Dying For Yes It s a simple answer but one made all the apparent and justified as you read this book and take a look at the atrocities which have taken place across the Russia and Chechnya And it s amazing how intimate a picture Anna is able to paint in just a few short articles about what s going on in one small corner of the world a depressing one though I m astounded at the role that Anna Politkovskaya [...]

    Anna Politkovskaya was a correspondent for the Novaya Gazeta newspaper and was an outspoken critic of the Kremlin and its policies in Chechnya The definition of a hero in many people s eyes is a person who is admired for courage or noble qualities Anna was than a hero She was the voice of the Russian people the suppressed, the murdered, the victimized She was extremely brave to speak out for the atrocities done to the people in Chechnya and other parts of Russia She was murdered in her apartmen [...]

    These are basically compilations of articles that Anna wrote before her death in 2006, being the victim of a contract killing on October 7, 2006 The articles are an amazing piece of work Anna s writings are eye opening, sharp, and detailed I found it hard to go through so many articles at once, just for the sheer magnitude of the volume 480 pages.

    Entre m s leo a Politkovskaya m s claro tengo que ella hizo de su profesi n y, principalmente, de los temas que investig , una causa Mujer valiente, sensible y con un sue o de justicia Logr captar la atenci n mundial y que 40 cr menes de lesa humanidad fueran llevados a la justicia rusa Tambi n consigui su muerte El libro me entristeci much simo.

    This book is a heavy concentration of articles and testimonies written and gathered by Politkovskaia about the conflict between Tchetchenia and Russia, and the war against the opposants to the system Needs a little personnal research, in spite of the translators notes, to fully understand what it s about, and who are the people in the book.

    The final dispatches from the internationally celebrated Russian journalist who was murdered in Moscow in 2006.

    Whew, powerful and sobering review of this courageous journalist s work in NYT.nytimes 2011 04 05 boo

    Monica
    Good, but sad and difficult to read at times War is no easy topic.

    Tom Chang
    Very eye opening book about an uphill battle for truth amidst government corruption.

    Norman Felchle
    Not easy subject matter.but how can you not read something the writer actually died for Important stuff for understanding Russia and Chechnyabut for keeping an eye on the way America s going in relation to terrorism.In addition to all that, there s a touching sense of who Anna was as a person, conveyed not just by her writingbut also by tributes written by friends, co workers, admirersd even enemies.
