Praise for Nothing But the Truth

It's a great, if at times, stomach-churning, read by a journalist who told it like it was and paid the price

Tina Faulk, Spectator

An impressive testimony to the most courageous form of journalism- dedicated to unearthing inconvenient facts and making uncomfortable arguments

Financial Times

Anna Politkovskaya refused to lie, in her work; her murder is a ghastly act, and an attack on world literature

Nadine Gordimer

Haunting compilation

Peter Preston, Observer

Her death is a grave crime against the country, against all of us

Mikhail Gorbachev

Shows her strength as a chronicler... Her eye for detail was unfailing

John Lloyd, Financial Times

Terrifying... Intense... Breathtaking

Jon Snow

The dispatches selected for this volume...make for a compelling body of work

Mary Dejevsky, Indepedent

There is some remarkable court reporting. Proceedings to bring one mass murderer to justice are brought brilliantly to life. But it is not all death and destruction. Also included is other journalism, including some delightful pieces on issues ranging from death of passion in Russia to the challenges in brining up a psychologically damaged dog....Politkovskya was murdered...but she has not been silenced and her journalism should continue to speak to us long after the riffraff she confronted are thankfully gone from the scene

The Oldie

This collection of journalism should remind people of the big, obvious fact that sometimes gets forgotten: Anna Politkovskaya was a fantastic reporter. She knew what a story was, how to get it and how to tell it. Dead or alive, she demands to be read and heard and trusted...

Andrew Hosken, The Oldie

We will continue to read her and learn from her for years

Salman Rushdie
