Di tutti i libri di Anna Politkovskaja questo uscito dopo il suo assassinio il pi tragico e potente ci dice infatti il perch di un destino consente di leggere in successione le cronache che nel tempo hanno decretato la fine di una vita Gli articoli sono stati raccolti dai figli e dalla sorella di Anna Politkovskaja e grazie al lavoro appassionato dei giornalisti di Novaja gazeta Ne uscito un documento dove testi pubblicati e altri ancora inediti confluiscono in una sorta di ininterrotto reportage sulla Russia contemporanea dall ottobre a fine settembre pochi giorni prima della morte avvenuta il ottobre nell androne di casa per mano di un killer Il febbraio un tribunale moscovita ha assolto i tre imputati del delitto ma il giugno la Corte Suprema ha annullato per significative violazioni procedurali la sentenza di assoluzione Il processo dunque si rifar Per Anna Politkovskaja l unico giornalismo possibile era un giornalismo sanitario cos lei lo definiva teso a proclamare una verit che si imprime nella memoria anche grazie al vigore dello stile al senso dello humour all alta percettivit nello scandagliare l anima di vincitori e vinti Il campo di indagine vastissimo ma qui gli scenari gi delineati nei libri precedenti vengono ripercorsi con nuovi dettagli e approfondimenti rivelatori, Dall agosto del Anna Politkovskaia grande reporter del bisettimanale Novaia Gazetta stata pi di quaranta volte in Cecenia per seguire la guerra la seconda che questa piccola repubblica subisce Secondo la giornalista sono in gioco l avvenire stesso della Russia e le sue chance di arrivare a una vera democrazia Descrivendo il calvario della popolazione cecena dimostra che il persistere del conflitto lo rende sempre pi incontrollabile La violenza assoluta favorisce la minoranza cecena pi estrema a detrimento della maggioranza dalle idee pi occidentali e disumanizza i combattenti dei due schieramenti I militari russi saccheggiano stuprano e uccidono nella totale impunit i combattenti ceceni annegano nella delazione e nei regolamenti di conti divorati dal desiderio di vendetta da una parte e da ciniche esigenze di sopravvivenza dall altra scivolando talvolta nella criminalit pura e semplice Alla fine questi comportamenti finiscono per corrodere moralmente tutta la societ Per Anna Politkovskaia che non risparmia nemmeno il presidente russo Vladimir Putin questa spirale infernale ha la sua origine nella tradizione di un potere che ha bisogno di un nemico di un capro espiatorio cui far portare il peso dei problemi reali dei russi nel difficile periodo del postcomunismo, A collection of final dispatches by the famed journalist including the first translation of the work that may have led to her murder br br Anna Politkovskaya won international fame

Akhmed Zakaev 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 her deep regrets about the fate of Russia From the Trade Paperback edition, The recent murder of Anna Politkovskaya is grim evidence of the danger faced by journalists passionately committed to writing the truth about wars and politics A longtime critic of the Russian government particularly with regard to its policies in Chechnya Politkovskaya was a special correspondent for the liberal Moscow newspaper i Novaya gazeta i Beginning in Politkovskaya authored numerous articles about the war in Chechnya and she was the only journalist to have constant access to the region br br Politkovskaya s second book on the Chechen War i A Small Corner of Hell i offers an insider s view of this ongoing conflict In this book Politkovskaya focuses her attention on those caught in the crossfire She recounts the everyday horrors of living in the midst of war examines how the Chechen war has damaged Russian society and takes a hard look at the ways people on both sides profited from it Now available in paperback i A Small Corner of Hell i ensures that Politkovskaya s words will not be erased i A Small Corner of Hell i skips harrowingly from year to year and place to place The arch villains are the Russian death squads venal and brutal and the complacent lying politicians and generals who profit from the illegal trade in booty oil and captives Her heroes are not the Chechen resistance a gangsterish and ill fed lot but the long suffering civilian population whose natural grit and solidarity has gradually dissolved under the relentless brutality of daily life i Economist i br A personal unblinking stare at the casualties of war Jonathan Kaplan i Los Angeles Times i
