“The written word offered subversive possibilities in a dictatorship, offered some hope of freedom.”
Anjan Sundaram, Bad News: Last Journalists in a Dictatorship

“Even if the state thought it was doing good, Roger insisted, that was perhaps the most dangerous kind of policy, and where the journalist was most necessary.”
Anjan Sundaram, Bad News: Last Journalists in a Dictatorship

“The collapse, the crisis. It is how the world knows Congo. Death is as widespread in few places. Children born here have the bleakest futures. It is the most diseased, the most corrupt, and the least habitable—the country heads nearly every conceivable blacklist. One survey has it that no nation has more citizens who want to leave.”
Anjan Sundaram, Stringer: A Reporter's Journey in the Congo
