Beslan: Six stories of the siege

Six stories of the siege

Sue-Ann Harding

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first, sustained close reading of Russian-language online media accounts of the Beslan siege, now seen as a vital turning point in Russia's approach to terrorism and security
  • Investigates material - most of it virgin territory for academic study - never before subjected to scholarly analysis in this depth and with this degree of systematicity
  • The 'theme and variation' structure of the analysis moving through time and space in a cumulative retelling of stories that creates a compelling and intensifying sense of momentum
  • On a theoretical level, this book is an excellent, innovative case study in the application of social narratology to studies of the reporting and translation of violent conflict
