Behind The Headlines

Behind the hyperbole of the headlines often lie more complex truths. Writers dedicated to the art of reportage offer us a more unvarnished take on events. Philip Gourevitch revealed the full horror of the Rwandan massacres, Michael Herr exposed the banal horror of combat in Vietnam and Anna Politkovskaya bravely, and fatally, took on corruption in Putin's Russia. See further than the news bulletins with our selection of the finest documentary writing.
