Is Journalism Worth Dying For?

Elena Kudimova, sister of murdered Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya, talks about Politkovskaya’s courageous reporting. Is Journalism Worth Dying For? Final Dispatches is a collection of Politkovskaya’s writing—from personal ideas about the nature of journalism, to horrendous reports from Chechnya, to pieces of memoir. It also includes the first translation of the series of investigative reports she was working on at the time of her murder—pieces many believe led to her assassination.
