Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of final dispatches by the famed journalist, including the first translation of the work that may have led to her murder

Anna Politkovskaya won international famefor her courageous reporting. Is Journalism Worth Dying For? is a long-awaited collection of her final writing.

Beginning with a brief introduction by the author about her pariahstatus, the book contains essays that characterize the self-effacing Politkovskaya more fully than she allowed in her other books. From deeply personal statements about the nature of journalism, to horrendous reports fromChechnya, to sensitive pieces of memoir, to, finally, the first translation of the series of investigative reports that Politkovskaya was working on at the time of her murder--pieces many believe led to herassassination.

Elsewhere, there are illuminating accounts of encounters with leaders including Lionel Jospin, Tony Blair, George W. Bush, and such exiled figures as Boris Berezovsky, AkhmedZakaev, Vladimir Bukovsky. Additional sections collect Politkovskaya's non-political writing, revealing her delightful wit, deep humanity, and willingness to engage with the unfamiliar, as well as herdeep regrets about the fate of Russia.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
