內容簡介

2016年1月美國亞馬遜網路書店選書。
獲得媒體與出版界一致好評。

繼電影《驚爆焦點》敘述《波士頓環球報》的記者們揭發天主教會在波士頓性侵兒童的醜聞,更加提醒我們有關新聞調查與新聞道德的種要性,Anjan Sundaram在此刻出版的新書更凸顯新聞採訪在專制國家的危險,書中記錄震撼心靈的畫面,以及那些勇於在嚴峻的形勢實踐新聞自由的可貴──舊金山紀事報。

政治學,現代歷史和新聞學系的學生,極重要的一本書。──Publishers Weekly。


第一本作品Stringer: A Reporter's Journey in the Congo為Anjan Sundaram贏得媲美V. S. Naipaul的讚譽。這次他從剛果來到了盧安達,在慘絕人寰的盧安達種族滅絕大屠殺後,持續政治動盪、社會不安,Anjan Sundaram在盧安達首都吉佳利進行新聞記者訓練計畫的所見所聞,卡加梅總統在1994年大屠殺後奪取政權後,常常受吹捧為是象徵中非進步和現代的燈塔,燈塔背後潛伏的是恐懼,是不待見不同政見者任何聲音的政府,全面性控制思維和口語表達,一個極獨裁的政府。

繃緊的散文描述被困在一個國家中,令人窒息的恐懼氣氛,極好的揭露獨裁統治的重要作品。

The author of the acclaimed Stringer: A Reporter’s Journey in the Congo now moves on to Rwanda for a gripping look at a country caught still in political and social unrest, years after the genocide that shocked the world.
 
Bad News is the story of Anjan Sundaram's time running a journalist's training program out of Kigali, the capital city of one of Africa's most densely populated countries, Rwanda. President Kagame’s regime, which seized power after the genocide that ravaged its population in 1994, is often held up as a beacon for progress and modernity in Central Africa and is the recipient of billions of dollars each year in aid from Western governments and international organizations. Lurking underneath this shining vision of a modern, orderly state, however, is the powerful climate of fear springing from the government's brutal treatment of any voice of dissent. "You can't look and write," a policeman ominously tells Sundaram, as he takes notes at a political rally. In Rwanda, the testimony of the individual—the evidence of one's own experience—is crushed by the pensée unique: the single way of thinking and speaking, proscribed by those in power. 
 
A vivid portrait of a country at an extraordinary and dangerous place in its history, Bad News is a brilliant and urgent parable on freedom of expression, and what happens when that power is seized.
