In this distillation of frontline experiences and cultural insights, Anita Pratap, one of the finest journalists India has ever produced, faithfully reports on the consequences of war, ethnic conflict, earthquakes, cyclones, prejudices, and the mindless hatred and fear that has hurt so much of the world. Wherever there was a story to be told-from her native India to Afghanistan and Sri Lanka-Pratap braved the odds to send in reports from the front, managing to track down elusive stories and make headlines. With determined diligence she exposed the terrors inside such frightening regimes as the Taliban, returning home each time with a renewed determination to appreciate and celebrate the ordinary.
Anita Pratap has worked for leading Indian and American newspapers and magazines including India Today and Time. She was the New Delhi Bureau Chief for CNN and has won several prestigious international awards for her work.
“Anita Pratap’s account is a splendid one.” (The Telegraph)“Island of Blood deals with some of the most important events of our time.” (India Today)
