A Russian Diary Summary


A Russian Diary: With a Foreword by Jon Snow by Anna Politkovskaya

A Russian Diary is the book that Anna Politkovskaya had recently completed when she was murdered in a contract killing in Moscow. Covering the period from the Russian parliamentary elections of December 2003 to the tragic aftermath of the Beslan school siege in late 2005, A Russian Diary is an unflinching record of the plight of millions of Russians and a pitiless report on the cynicism and corruption of Vladimir Putin's Presidency.

A Russian Diary Reviews


"Passionate... Devastating... Powerful" * Guardian *
"Politkovskaya is a Solzhenitsyn for the 21st century... Very few were telling a similar truth in her lifetime and even fewer will tell it now that she is dead" * Observer *
"Politkovskaya gives an account of life as it is lived under Putin, fearlessly detailing the chaos and corruption she saw around her" * Independent on Sunday *
"Brilliant... she reminds us what journalism can be" * Herald *
"This is her testimony... it makes for impressive and immediate reading" * Independent *
