it was amazing
Read in August, 2007

To read this book is haunting, especially in light of what happened to Politkovskaya for engaging in the kind of fearless journalism she did. The stories from Chechnya are horrific, not just because of the misery they so often focus on, but also for the fact that while this kind of thing goes on across the world the vast majority of our journalists in the US choose instead to focus on such endless bullshit. Yet, she does manage to insert some stories of hope through such horrible chaos. Politkovskaya was an amazingly courageous person, and this book should be read by everyone.
