Summary
"More than a collection of articles and columns, A Small Corner of Hell offers a rare insider's view of life in Chechnya over the past years, augmented by a richly informed introduction by Chechnya authority Georgi Derluguian that explains the region's tangled relationship to Russia. Centered on stories of those caught - literally - in the crossfire of the conflict, the book recounts the horrors of living in the midst of the war, examines how the war has affected Russian society, and takes a hard look at how people on both sides are profiting from it, from the guards who accept bribes from Chechens out after curfew to the United Nations. Politkovskaya's unflinching honesty and her courage in speaking truth to power combine here to produce a powerful account of what is acknowledged as one of the most dangerous and least understood conflicts on the planet."--Jacket
