Abstract / Description

Assignment Moscow: reporting on Russia from Putin to Lenin (2023) by James Rodgers provides a highly readable, chronological history of western journalistic reporting on Russia, beginning with the 1917 October Revolution and recently updated – in the newest edition – to the present day. Interspersed with personal anecdotes, interviews with journalists, archival material, and a smattering of photographs (some of which are the author’s own), it documents not only the working conditions of the largely intrepid but sometimes incredibly naive journalists who have reported from Moscow and beyond but also their motivations for doing so – and the political intrigue that surrounded them.
